For the last 2 years, both of us had been using portable humidifiers all Winter long.
The people I was with and I have a fireplace that works wonderfully for heating the house.
The concern was that a fireplace pulls all the moisture out of the air. The people I was with and I had to have humidifiers to put the moisture back in the air. My hubby started tiring of trudging down the stairs into the basement. He would carry the water back up the basement stairs plus up the steps to the new home landing, where he filled the humidifier. He followed this routine three times a morning for at least various months a year. I understood how exhausted he was of this routine, but he took a absolutely fancy route. He called the Heating plus Air Conditioning dealer plus told them he needed a humidifier that would run with the gas furnace. I had to admit that the humidifier worked well, plus I was no longer itchy all the time. I just couldn’t figure out why he had done such a rash move. When he finally fessed up, he told me that he figured out how various times he had climbed the stairs over the last three years. He figured how various gallons of water he had carried. He also figured out how much wood he had cut plus carried for the fireplace. He thought that a new gas furnace that had a humidifier connected was better for both of us. I have to admit that I am feeling much better since both of us quit using the fireplace. I don’t suffer from asthma plus dust sensitivities all winter. He made a wonderful decision with the gas furnace plus humidifier.
