Welcome to Rice HVAC! If you’re experiencing the winter months in a dry climate, you know how uncomfortable it can be to live with dry air, especially when you have to run the heater most of the time.


The good news is that a whole home humidifier can help regulate the humidity level in your entire home. At Rice HVAC, we offer professional installation of whole house humidifiers for homes in the Chicagoland area.


What is a whole home humidifier?


A whole home humidifier is an integral piece of HVAC equipment that regulates the humidity level in your entire home. Humidifiers use water to add moisture to the air in your home, making the air more comfortable to breathe and reducing many of the negative side effects of low humidity.


How does a whole home humidifier work?


A whole home humidifier is typically installed directly into your home’s HVAC equipment. As the air flows through the humidifier, the water output automatically adjusts to achieve and maintain your desired indoor humidity level.


Which brands of whole home humidifiers do we offer?


At Rice HVAC, we have partnered with some of the top humidifier brands in the industry to offer you a wide selection of models that meets a variety of home needs and budgets. Our whole house humidifier brands include:


- Aprilaire

- Carrier

- Honeywell

- Lennox


Why install a whole home humidifier?


- Healthier air 

Low humidity can cause respiratory issues, especially among those with asthma or allergies. By investing in a whole home humidifier, you can reduce irritating symptoms and other health issues related to dry air in the winter.


- Increased Comfort

 Adding moisture to the air in your home will make you feel more comfortable throughout the winter months. Higher humidity levels are also associated with better sleep and reduced snoring.


- Reduced energy costs 

You might think that adding humidity to your home would increase your energy costs - but this isn't the case! In fact, it often leads to decreased energy costs. When the air inside your home is humid, it will hold heat better, meaning your heater won't have to work as hard and deferring cost savings from your energy company billings.


- Protects Your Home Investment

Dry air can cause hardwood flooring, furniture and millwork to contract or even potentially crack. A whole house humidifier offers a better solution to maintaining a proper level of humidity, resulting in added comfort throughout the cold dry winter months while protecting your most precious investment.
