10 Benefits Of Using A Humidifier

Dry air is no laughing matter! The St. Louis Area is known for its unpredictable weather and drastic changes in humidity. Whole-home humidifiers keep your home at the appropriate humidity level (no matter what kind of weather swing we’re having) and offer a series of health benefits! Check out these reasons why a whole-home humidifier could be the right choice for your home: 

1. Reduced Allergy Symptoms

Whole-home humidifiers significantly help to manage allergy symptoms, preventing your skin and airways from drying out which can help reduce coughing, swelling, runny noses, and irritation.

2. Comfortable Throats & Sinuses

The added moisture in the air provided by a humidifier provides relief to dry noses and vocal cords, especially when you sleep. This also increases your resistance to bacteria in the air and prevents you from waking up with sore throats and clogged sinuses.

3. Sleep Easy

Dry air means a dry respiratory system which leads to snoring. If you or your partner sore, a moist environment can calm dry and scratchy sinuses and provide a comfortable and quiet sleep througout the night.

4. Skin Health

Dry skin is caused by dry air – who’da thought?? Humidifiers hydrate your skin which not only reduces itchiness and irritation, but also prevents acne, flaking, and helps maintain soft, vibrant skin.

5. Lowered Risk of Colds & Flu

Moist air prevents bacteria from traveling easily and can prevent you from catching any nasty colds or the flu this season.

6. No More Static

Static electricity can seem to be inevitable in the cold months. Humidifiers get rid of the dry air that static needs to travel through, preventing those annoying shocks and sticky clothes during the winter.

7. Longer Furniture Life

Dry air will steal the moisture right out of your wood furniture and floors, which will cause cracking and degradation. Humidifiers help maintain the integrity of the wood and increase its lifespan.

8. Healthy Plant Life

The health of your houseplants will certainly be affected by dry winter air. Humidifiers can keep your plants from drooping and keep their soil from quickly drying out.

9. Reduced Energy Bills

Added humidity to the air will make it feel warmer. This is evident outside during the summer months. During the winter though, a humidifier can increase the temperature of the air inside your home and cut down on heating costs.

10. Minimal Maintenance

Whole-home humidifiers are installed directly into your air ducts and are connected to your water supply. This means that they have everything they need to treat the air inside your home and require very little upkeep. Therefore, they are significantly cheaper and easier to maintain than having several small humidifiers running throughout your home.

Always love using Budget. We used them in the past around Christmas time and they ensured we didn’t go without hot water. This week our Furnace went out ( it was 31 years old) and they were here the same day to assess what needed done. Then returned the next day to install our new Furnace. Everyone there is so easy to work with. They are professional, their techs are professional, knowledgeable and only have good things to say about the company they work for. We worked with Gabe and Mike. They were both excellent! Kaitlin in the office only made our experience even better! Thank you!

Contacted the office requesting a quote for a new Furnace and AC unit and they sent out Keith the following day! He was very kind and willing to answer all of our questions and even provided a quote the same day with a cash discount! It took about a week for our parts to come in, the installers arrived on time and were quick to get things rolling. They completed the job quickly and cleaned up after themselves when they were done. Would definitely recommend to anyone needing a new AC unit or furnace to use this company they were wonderful to work with!

Budget is the ONLY company that I trust for plumbing repairs and maintaining my heating/cooling systems. They have done work that others couldn't handle and at a decent price. I will continue to use them for whatever services they offer. I appreciate everything they have done for me so far.

We purchased our HVAC system from Budget in 2019 and have been very pleased with it overall, except recently the AC unit was making a strange noise. The unit sits on an elevated pad which I wanted it to be out on the ground at install but the tech did not have time to change that out. He told me that he would do it at a later date if it bothered us. Budget was quick to fulfill this request and Justin came out to put the unit on the ground. It looks so much better now, but the best part is it is now so quiet when it runs!  Beyond happy with the 5-star service the team at Budget provided. Thanks so much Cassidy and Justin!

Our Hot Water Heater just went out on us unexpectedly and Budget was able to come out the same day, assess everything and lock me down for a time, early next week. The customer service from Jennifer was above and beyond. She was so nice and helped my family. Isiah was very smart and knowledgeable and took the time to explain what was needed and the process. Would definitely use them again.

- Joseph C.

The technician showed up early and solved the issue right away. He was happy to address my questions and concerns regarding my aging HVAC. I was impressed with how knowledgeable he was. Per my request, he sent replacement estimates ranging from good to premier. This is the second time I’ve had great service from Budget.

- Amanda K.

I had a Water Heater installed today. Not only was it quality work, but the installers were professional and courteous. My house poses some unique problems as far as plumbing goes, but the installers handled it with ease. 10/10, will definitely use Budget again.

- Kelly G.

The Faucet in my condo was not working properly, the water flow on the hot water side was very small. Budget sent technician Tim to solve the problem and he replaced the Faucet in an amazingly short amount of time and patiently walked me through the Drainage System. He was highly skilled and efficient! Strongly recommend Budget!

- Tricia G.

We have had Budget out a couple times and they are always very professional, quick to come out once called and helpful! This past time it was Mike and he was great! Every time we need service on our HVAC we will continue to use them. Thank you for all you do!
