How Does a Humidifier Work?

Did you know that humidifying your indoor air (or adding moisture to the air) is as beneficial to your family’s comfort and health as heating your home? Relative humidity (RH) indicates the amount of water vapor (expressed as a percentage) that’s actually in the air compared to the maximum amount of water the air could hold under the same conditions. The warmer the air, the more moisture it can hold.

With an Aprilaire humidifier from GAC Services, we’ll install a humidifying system that accurately monitors and maintains optimal humidity levels in your Maryland home.
