Now is a good time to fix any humidifier problems you’re having

 

 

A humidifier is a great addition to your home because it gets rid of the cold, dry winter air that causes discomfort. Having one will also decrease your chances of catching the dreaded winter virus we all know as the flu. In addition, a humidifier will help your home feel warmer at lower temperatures so you’ll save money on your heating bills. And now is a good time to get any and all repairs for your humidifier out of the way.

In Woodridge, a customer had an April Aire 760 humidifier that needed a few different parts replaced. We want to walk you through that process in case you ever have similar problems.
