Orland Park, IL is well-known for the dire winter weather, we expect temperatures in the low teens or even below zero.
We often set records for the amount of snow accumulation plus severity of the wind chill, then it can be dangerous to spend much time outdoors.
We are forced to remain inside plus rely on the heater for more than six months of the year. When the weather is cold, the air doesn’t contain as much moisture, however the lack of humidity can create some troubles inside the house. Static shock, chapped lips plus frizzy hair are some of the consequences. There are also health troubles, such as anxious symptoms of asthma, dust sensitivities, psoriasis plus eczema. Sore throat, difficulty sleeping, migraines, congestion, sneezing plus coughing can often be blamed on unsatisfactory moisture, and overly dry air can cause hardwood floors to crack plus squeak. It can disfigurement hardwood doors, moldings, antiques plus musical instruments; Plus, dry air feels colder than properly humidified air, leading to higher thermostat settings plus more costly heating bills. The added demands on the heater increases wear plus tear, the risk of malfunction plus need for premature updatement. I’ve realized that residing in Orland Park means needing a whole-cabin humidifier. We chose a steam-style humidifier that adds a legitimately natural-style of moisture into the heated air before it enters the various rooms. The equipment operates silently plus allows customization of humidity levels. It requires only annual repair. I have it worked on during the fall, at the same time as the heater! Because of the humidifier, I’ve been able to lower the thermostat setting plus yet the entire residing space feels more comfortable.
