The new year arrived on the scene with a swift drop in temperature and snowfall. With the frigid temps, the air has become bone-dry leaving skin cracked, lips chapped, hands dry and hair full of static. There are many home accessories that Jennings Heating supplies for your comfort but, aside from heating and cooling, there is none more important than the whole house humidifier. With busy schedules, it’s easy to forget to do something as simple as turn on the humidifier when necessary, which is what makes the Aprilaire Model 600 humidifier so wonderful- it has an automatic outside temperature sensor that will turn on for the season without a reminder and also adjusts automatically to outside conditions!
There are many reasons to have a whole house humidifier installed, including the following:
- Low Relative Humidity can make you more susceptible to catching a cold and flu viruses have been linked to speedier progression and transmit ion in dry air.
- Cold dry air can also aggravate asthma
- Itchy eyes, dry skin and a sore throat can all be traced back to air that’s not properly humidified
- Dry air can make your home feel even cooler, causing you to turn up the heat in order to feel comfortable
- Properly humidified air can decrease the occurrence of nose bleeds

With the extreme cold setting in, we do tend to get calls from customers with plumbing pipe freeze-ups. To avoid these freeze-ups remember to:
- Turn off water lines leading to outside faucets
- Insulate pipes leading up outside walls where accessible
- If you have a pipe on an outside wall that is not accessible to insulate and has frozen before, allow the faucet that the pipe feeds to drip ever so slowly and only on those very cold nights.
Well, things in Ohio are looking up; the economy seems to be improving, the first part of winter was not all that bad (though we may be paying for those mild temps in the months to come) and our Ohio State Buckeyes are National Champions! So, let’s all think positive, count our blessings and look forward to what 2015 has in store.
Have a wonderful and happy new year!
