Indoor Air Quality
- Air Conditioning
- Windows and Doors
In order to achieve true comfort in your home, the EPA recommends that your relative humidity level be between 30% and about 50%. Anything beyond either of these limits can cause a number of issues for your health, your comfort, and even your property. However, whether your problem is too little moisture or too much, the pros at Sierra Pacific Home & Comfort, Inc. have the solution.
We’re talking about the installation of a humidifier or a dehumidifier in your Sacramento, CA home. These whole house systems are integrated with your existing HVAC system, where you have easy control over them with a thermostat that has a humidistat feature.

Balancing Humidity in Your Household
You’re probably well aware of what too much humidity feels like: it gives you that icky, sticky feeling during the summertime and makes it nearly impossible to cool off. And if you’re feeling this within your home, you could be facing much bigger issues than just discomfort. For instance, too much moisture in one’s home leads to the development of mold and mildew.
Humidity is hard on households throughout Sacramento, CA. It can affect your furnishings, your flooring, and even your health—particularly if anyone in your family already suffers from allergies and/or asthma. The same can be said for the lack of moisture within a home.
When you have a whole house humidifier and/or dehumidifier installed, however, you won’t have to worry about excess moisture or the lack of it. This is because a whole house humidity balancing system integrates seamlessly with your HVAC system, removing or adding moisture as necessary.
Is the Air in Your Home Too Dry?
We may be known for some fairly humid conditions, but that doesn’t mean we can escape the impact of dry air. Some homes throughout Sacramento, CA and the surrounding cities certainly do suffer from this problem, particularly during the winter. Dry air presents itself health wise with dry, itchy skin, sinus issues, sore throats, and low immunity. Inside your home, you’ll likely notice splintering wood, shipping paint, and even peeling wallpaper.
The best humidifier to have professionally installed in order to tackle this is a whole house system. A portable humidifier is great for single–room use—perhaps in a baby’s room or the room of someone who is currently sick. However, to truly reap the benefits of added moisture, a whole house humidifier is the way to go. This means your entire home will be treated, not just individual rooms.
We Provide Comprehensive Humidifier and Dehumidifier Services
To function as it should, both whole house dehumidifiers and humidifiers must be integrated correctly with your existing HVAC system, and this is not a job to leave to just anyone. Our trained and experienced experts have been updating HVAC systems for over three decades.
So if you need assistance with balancing the humidity in your home, whether there is too much or too little, then you can trust the team here at Sierra Pacific Home & Comfort, Inc. to get the job done right!
