Air Quality Q&A

Q: How much does a humidifier cost?

Q: How much does a dehumidifier cost?

A: Like humidifier systems and installation costs, the costs of a whole-home dehumidifier and installation service will depend on the application and size of the dehumidifier. While these costs are typically higher than the expense related to humidifiers, you can get specific pricing by calling Blind & Sons.

Q: How do I know what percentage the humidity should be in my home?

A: There are a lot of factors that determine optimum humidity levels in the home. Breathing issues, respiratory problems, musical equipment, wood work and other factors all can affect the proper humidity levels. Optimum humidity levels are usually between 35%-55%.

Q: How can I tell if my humidity is too high? What should I do?

Most new thermostats are capable of monitoring humidity levels. There are also many stand-alone humidistats that you can purchase. The best way to determine your actual humidity levels are to have a service technician come to the home and test the levels throughout the home. The only way to fix humidity problems is to control the humidity by using a humidifier in the winter and a dehumidifier in the summer. Our indoor air quality experts would be happy to come do an assessment to determine the best solution for your home.

Q: How does an air scrubber work?

A: The activTek INDUCT 2000 substantially reduces odors, visible smoke in the air, and microbial populations on surfaces, utilizing the patent pending ActivePure technology. ActivePure consists of a special UV light and photocatalyst target, creating an Advanced Oxidation Process containing several friendly oxidizers.
