The humidity level inside your home greatly affects your health and comfort. Too little moisture in the air can cause your skin to dry out and irritate your sinuses and respiratory tract. Low humidity can also cause woodwork to crack and shrink. But you can’t detect low humidity as if it were an unpleasant or unhealthy odor. Usually, your only signs are discomfort and difficulty breathing.
A.W. Crooks Plumbing & Heating, Inc. installs and services all different types of home humidification equipment for homes in the Battle Creek area. The amount of humidification you need depends on the total square footage of your home and other factors. Our certified staff can help you choose the correct humidifier and we can handle the entire installation. If necessary, we’ll make sure that it’s correctly integrated with your home heating system.
Many of our customers have discovered that a relatively small investment in humidification equipment has produced significant health benefits. When your sinuses and throat become dried out, they become more susceptible to infections from bacteria and viruses. Many of our customers with respiratory difficulties have found that it’s absolutely essential to make sure that the humidity in their home is balanced at all times, to prevent flares and coughing spells.

Humidifier Installation and Service
Indoor heating dries out the air, regardless of which kind of heating system you have in your home. Many homeowners believe that only forced air heating systems dry out the air. That’s not correct. Homes with hydronic (hot water) heating systems become just as dry.
Our certified staff can install a humidification system that’s perfect for your home, regardless of what type of heating system it has. We also perform routine maintenance on humidifiers, and do repair work on most models, in case your humidifier isn’t working correctly.
