Albuquerque Humidifiers are the Answer for Dryness

It’s no secret New Mexico is a dry place to live! And this affects people’s skin, hair, causes bloody noses, and other discomforts. If you run humidifiers in your home but don’t feel like they adequately cover the square footage, and you hate cleaning them and constantly refilling them, we have a solution for you!

Humidifiers for Albuquerque Homes and Businesses

At Bosque, we’ve seen and heard of a lot of humidifiers that promise one thing but aren’t able to deliver. That’s why we highly recommend and only install steam humidifiers by Aprilaire. Because of the nature of air conditioners, humidifiers work best in the winter when you’re running your furnace. That’s because air conditioners work by removing heat and moisture from the air, so a humidifier and an AC unit always end up battling.

But in the winter, which is when it tends to feel the driest, a humidifier works to add moisture to your whole home, relieving dry skin and other discomforts of the dry air here in Albuquerque. These humidifiers are self-cleaning and hook up to a water source, so you never have to fill them up. And as a side benefit, you can actually run your thermostat a little bit lower in the winter while using a humidifier, because the humidity added to the air ends up making your home feel warmer. 

How do I know if I need a humidifier connected to my HVAC?

Some people aren’t bothered by dry air while others are particularly sensitive to it. If you’ve recently moved to the Albuquerque area from a more humid climate, live in the Sandia region of Albuquerque where the elevation is higher, or are particularly prone to bloody noses and/or dry skin, you may want to consider a humidifier for your whole home.

Why is a whole-home humidifier better than running other store-bought humidifiers?

Often, humidifiers you buy from the store have a hard time covering the square footage you need coverage for. Also, many require constant cleaning and all require you to frequently refill the water storage compartment. If these factors are annoyances to you, or your humidifiers just don’t produce the humidity you need, then a steam humidifier that connects to your HVAC system is right for you.
