Humidifier Services in Chapel Hill, NC

You may have heard people complain about the effects of high humidity on their comfort, but did you know that low humidity can be just as challenging to put up with? Many homes have an issue with low levels of humidity—a lack of water vapor in the air. A certain amount of humidity is necessary for your comfort, and without it, you can feel the impact. Low humidity levels can contribute to your skin drying out, which can make you extremely uncomfortable. You may also feel colder, and low humidity levels can even have an effect on your health.

A home humidifier will emit water vapor as needed so that you can stay comfortable when you are running your heating and air conditioning equipment.


Adding on a brand-new system to your home is not an easy decision, but there are some signs that indicate a humidifier is the best choice for you and your family members. If you feel that you are always replacing lotions, creams, and lip balms because of dry skin and lips, you should contact a professional to help you assess your indoor air quality.

Low humidity will also make it challenging to stay warm in the winter.

Another thing to look out for is an illness that lasts longer than expected. Dry skin means dry mucous membranes, and when this happens, it’s more difficult for you to recover from an illness. A whole–house humidifier can offer relief from certain diseases. It may also create conditions in which viruses cannot live.


The best humidifier for your home is one that is appropriately sized and installed to work with your HVAC system. Portable units only improve humidity levels in a single area of the home. With a whole–house model, you don’t have to pay much attention to it, and there is usually less maintenance required.


When you are on the search for a new whole–house humidifier, contact Bud Matthews Services first. We have the experience to locate the right unit for you and to install it so that it performs as needed to keep humidity at an ideal level. Call us for installation, replacement, or repair and maintenance services. Our friendly technicians’ service Chapel Hill, NC, and the surrounding areas.
