A Healthy Home Starts With a Humidifier

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is essential to a healthy home in the winter. Dry air symptoms can include itchy skin, a dry nose, sore throats, the flu and can even affect hardwood flooring. AprilAire humidifiers are the equipment of choice for installation by Verne & Ellsworth Hann. The photo above shows a humidifier mounted to a recent installation we completed for a customer in Geauga County. We also offer retrofit installations for systems that currently do not have home humidification.

More people are becoming aware of IAQ issues within their home. Of course health is of paramount importance, but equally important is comfort and heating efficiency.

Humidifiers help alleviate that static zap you get when a buildup of electricity is discharged between objects or people. This static electricity occurs when objects have an imbalance of negative and positive electrical charge. In dry air the imbalanced charges have nowhere to go. In humid air, this electricity is discharged harmlessly because moisture acts as a natural conductor allowing the charge to leave objects – and you!

To be more specific about the health benefits consider that physiological passages from the nose the depths of the lungs are most functional when a room has a relative humidity level of between 40% to 60%. Mucus lined passages prevent pathogens from invading into deeper body tissues by constantly washing particles away. This critical defense mechanism is impaired by dry air, enabling harmful organisms to reach deep lung tissue and the blood stream.

In conclusion, whether its for comfort or health, an AprilAire humidifier may be the best decision for yourself and your family. It may be the best homeopathic decision you can make. Whether you live in Cleveland Heights, Shaker Heights or any part of Northeast Ohio, give Verne & Ellsworth Hann a call to solve your home humidity issues. Stop living in a desert. Start living in a comfortable, healthy IAQ environment.

What People Are Saying

  • Your company did an excellent job!  We really appreciated how quickly your crew worked in order to get our heat back on as soon as possible.  Everyone seemed very knowledgeable, professional and excellent in their work!

    - Marianne P.( Aurora, Boiler Installation, December 2017 )
  • Bill carefully examined the old boiler and piping, checked all the radiators and came up with a replacement proposal.  He explained two issues with the old boiler that other contractors did not notice or did not care to explain.  The first was what’s causing the rust in the boiler and how he was going to minimize the issue in the new system.  The second was how he would re-pipe the kitchen loop so the kitchen wouldn’t be so cold.  Bill addressed each and every question I had.  Although we received four bids that were comparable, we chose Bill Hann’s company because he was knowledgeable, thoughtful and detailed.  The work was completed in two days by a great installer team.  They were on time, professional and courteous.  The new boiler and piping work nicely without any issues and we now have a comfortable kitchen to dine in.  I’d highly recommend them.

  • I strongly recommend Verne & Ellsworth Hann without reservation.  Choosing the right boiler was important and proper installation was critical.  I was impressed with all aspects of the Verne & Ellsworth Hann organization.  Most importantly, Bill Hann earned my trust.  The installation team was excellent.  They were experienced.  They arrived precisely on time every day.  They explained every step of the process.  They worked as a team.  They treated my home with extreme care, as if it was their own.  The installation is a thing of beauty.  Every time I go into my basement I smile.  I now have a reliable, efficient system.  I don’t usually take the time to write recommendations, but in this case I am doing so because it is so well deserved.
