We are NOT talking about love...
but we are talking about electricity, static electricity.
Heating season has been delayed by some terrific weather but it sounds like that great is coming to an end this evening with our first winter storm to arrive this weekend.
Heating season means dry air and dry air means static electricity. Dry air is hard on a lot of things, especially your body but the most noticeable thing you will find in your home is those static electricity shocks you will be receiving if you don't fire up that humidifier soon.
Humidifiers come in three basic designs and all kinds of shapes and sizes. There are automatic humidifiers built into some furnaces, there are cool air humidifiers, and there are steam humidifiers. They all do the job and they all require some maintenance so it's important to read the directions when you purchase one.
Every furnace man that I know personally discourage the automatic humidifiers built into the furnace because they say a built in humidifier will shorten the life of the furnace.
