Boilers – Part 19 Humidity and Dryness

December 16, 2010

Have you noticed that your home is dry. Do you feel static when you touch things? Do you wake up with a dry mouth? Do you have dry skin?

Do you know that the average boiler will cause about 1,000 cubic feet of outside cold air into your home every hour that it is firing? Think of how much your air is dried out because of this cold outside air. Think of how much it is costing you to heat this air. With a direct vent boiler, all combustion air is drawn from outside directly into your boiler so it will not waste energy and not dry out your home. So..if your home is too dry and you have a conventional boiler, think about replacing it now.
