Humidifiers in Reading


The dry heat in your home caused by forced air systems can wreak havoc on your home and body. To combat the dry air’s effects, consider purchasing a humidifier. Essig Plumbing and Heating knows how to help you keep your home comfortable all year long. Some effects of dry air are:

  • Dry skin
  • Irritated throats
  • Dry noses
  • Itchy skin
  • Damage to furniture, floors and paint
  • Increased allergy symptoms


How Does a Humidifier Work?

The air that is forced into your home through your heating system is lacking moisture. A home humidifier adds moisture back into the air through a variety of methods, including hot and cool mist. Humidifiers come in both portable varieties and whole home systems. We will help you choose the correct system for your home or business. Hot mist humidifiers are health risks to children, because they pose a burn risk.


What Are the Benefits of a Humidifier?

Humidifiers not only add moisture back into the air in your home, making your skin, throat, eyes and nose more comfortable, they can also reduce your energy costs. When air holds moisture, it feels warmer than air at the same temperature that does not hold any moisture. This is why it feels hotter in regions of the country with high humidity. Dry air speeds the evaporation of moisture from our skin, making you feel cooler. With proper levels of humidity, the moisture on the skin will remain, keeping you warmer and slowing down your bodies cooling mechanisms.

Humidifiers can also reduce the effects of allergies. Our trained technicians will help you choose the right humidifier for your needs and home and will provide you with upfront pricing and a satisfaction guarantee.
