Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers in Modesto, CA
At Greenhart, our goal is to help homeowners throughout Modesto, CA and the surrounding communities reduce their energy usage and loss, while optimizing their air quality for optimal comfort. We will always look for ways to provide immediate recommendations and solutions—in many cases these solutions include the installation of a whole-house humidifier and/or a whole-house dehumidifier.
Why would you need one or more of these systems? Because the relative humidity level within your home has a great deal to do with the level of comfort you feel, as well as how hard your HVAC systems have to work to maintain that comfort. Excessively humid air can’t be relieved simply by running your air conditioner, while excessively dry air will make the temperature seem cooler even when you have your heater running full blast.

The ideal relative humidity level in any Modesto area home rests between 30%-50%. Anything below 30% is considered too dry, and this most commonly happens in the wintertime. When the air doesn’t have enough moisture in it to retain heat, you and your family will feel cooler, and you’ll likely try to run your heater harder to compensate. This is inefficient, and does not resolve the problem.
A humidifier installation or humidifier replacement helps improve comfort and efficiency, but also prevents other problems dry air brings such as:
- Dried out, splitting, home furnishing and flooring
- Lowered immunity for household members as dry air impacts sinuses
- Static shock
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to our team to learn more about how a humidifier installation will benefit you during the winter season.
Your humidifier is just like any other major piece of home comfort equipment. Over the years it can suffer from wear and tear, eventually leading to the need for humidifier repair.
Humidifier maintenance will help reduce the risk of running into any huge repair needs, but it is important to be aware when your humidifier is suffering. If it doesn’t seem to be doing as effective of a job as it used to, it may be time to call in the pros for an inspection and potential repair.
As we mentioned, the ideal humidity level is between 30%-50%. Anything above 50% is considered too humid, and will create a number of problems. Your cooling system does have some dehumidification properties simply by the nature of its setup, thanks in part to its condensate line. However, this is not its intended purpose.
This is where the benefits of a professional dehumidifier installation come in. By eliminating excessive humidity, you’ll also eliminate problems like:
- Mold growth
- Warped floorboards and furnishing from too much moisture
- Decreased home comfort
- Inefficient AC operation as it will have to run too long to compensate
