Humidifier Services in Denver, CO
The climate of Denver is, on average, drier than the rest of the country. During the winter, dry conditions can become extreme, which makes the colder weather feel even more fierce and biting. This low humidity can create other troubles as well, such as an increase in the spread of illnesses, other health-related problems, and damage to property and possessions. Finding a proper balance of relative humidity in a house can make winters—as well as the rest of the year—healthier and more comfortable. Work with Cool Sunshine Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc. to learn more about our indoor air quality solutions.

Our big happy family of professionals is here to make your family happy! Call us today to schedule service on a whole-home humidifier in Denver, CO and the surrounding area.
The Troubles with Extremely Low Humidity
The ideal relative humidity level is between 30% and 50%. Going any lower or higher leads to problems. High humidity isn’t a common issue here in Denver, but falling below 30% happens frequently, with winter sometimes experiencing relative humidity around 15%. Here’s the way this creates trouble:
- Extra discomfort in cold conditions: When there is little moisture in the air, it makes it easier for heat to leave the human body through perspiration. This causes cold air to feel even colder than it is. People may like a "dry heat," but a "dry cold" is often miserable, and leads to running the heating system more than necessary and increasing energy bills.
- Easy spread of illness: Dry conditions cause sinuses and mucus membranes to dry up. This takes away an important defense of the body against the spread of illness, with the result that people get sicker much faster in a home with dry air.
- Property damage: Moisture rapidly escapes from wooden and painted surfaces in low humidity, leading to cracking, chipping, and warping.
Why a Whole–House Humidifier Is the Best Humidifier
You may be familiar with portable humidifiers, which people often use to help raise humidity levels of an infant’s room. But these portable units aren’t effective for an entire home and can raise the humidity in individual rooms to levels that are too high for comfort. What you want in your home is balanced humidity in every room, which means a relative humidity of around 45%. This requires a professionally installed whole–house humidifier. This unit is integrated into the ventilation system and supplies itself with water to work. A special humidistat allows for fine control over the humidity level so a house is also kept at a comfortable level.
