Does a Gas Furnace Really Dry Out a Home’s Air?

Monday, January 18th, 2021

You may have heard it stated as a solid, unshakeable fact that a gas furnace dries out the air in a house. All that winter static electricity, cracked skin, and eye-and-nose irritation comes from the furnace sucking the moisture out of the home’s air.

But is this true? When you stop to think about how a gas furnace runs, it might not make much sense that it would remove moisture from the air. After all, there’s no water dripping in the furnace the way water drips in an air conditioner, which does remove moisture from the air as it runs. Is the “dry air from a furnace” a myth?

The answer is “yes and no.” A gas furnace can contribute to drier conditions, although not exactly the way you think. And there are ways you can deal with this problem, either with an IAQ solution or a different furnace in Colorado Springs, CO.

Your Home Is More Than a Home Now—And Clean Air Ducts Can Make It Healthier

Monday, January 4th, 2021

Well, 2020 was … a year, wasn’t it? As much as everybody would love to forget it and push forward, the start of 2021 is an excellent time to pause for reflection about how to move forward using the lessons of the past.

Let’s take the example of your home. During a year in which you probably spent more time in your house than at any other time, your home will have become something much greater than just “a home.” It became a schoolhouse, a gym, an office, a digital conference room, a theater, even a personal hair salon.

And because you’ve been home to run that school, gym, office, and salon, now is a good time to discuss the condition of your home’s air ducts. Indoor air quality is an essential part of the health of you and your family. Dusty and dirty air ducts will lower the home’s air quality and make life indoors much less pleasant. We can help change that with duct cleaning in Colorado Springs, CO.
