Dry air is a problem throughout Greater Cincinnati during the winter months. The cold air can’t hold as much moisture as hot summer air. Your heating system likely wipes out whatever meager humidity is left in the air, leaving your house bone dry from October to April.
This dry air can cause static electricity to build up, shocking you when you go to touch a doorknob or flip a switch. Dry air will also dry out your skin, irritating it and causing it to be itchy. Adding a humidifier will significantly improve indoor air quality during winter.

Benefits of a Whole Home Humidifier
Winters in Cincinnati can get pretty cold, and your heating system is continuously operating. While it does make your house warmer, it also dries out the air.
A whole-house humidifier is integrated into your existing HVAC system and introduces water vapor into the air before it’s distributed through the house. A whole-home system is more efficient than a standalone humidifier, which can only affect one room at a time. The whole-home humidifier attaches directly to your water supply, so you aren’t constantly hauling buckets of water to refill it.
Low humidity can dry out your lips, skin, nasal passages, sinuses, and throat. For many people, a humidifier reduces the severity of allergies and asthma, allowing them to breathe and sleep easier. A little humidity can ease congestion and reduce inflammation. Chapped lips or cracked skin can be painful, and chapstick and lotion can only do so much. Humidity can even reduce snoring.
Research shows that the flu virus thrives during the winter. It lives longer outside our bodies in the cold, dry air. That’s why the flu always goes around in the winter. In dry air, the viral droplets get smaller and float longer, giving them more time to infect other people. Setting your home’s humidity to between 30 and 50 percent reduces the chances of spreading viruses.
Adding more water to the air will help it hold heat more efficiently. Moist air feels warmer. While a humidifier takes some electricity to run, you can offset some electricity by turning the heat down a few notches with the warmer feeling air.
Just as excessively humid air can harm your belongings, dry air can damage them, too. Dry air can shrink, warp, or crack wooden floors, molding, furniture, or inlays. It can damage valuable items made with natural materials such as wood, including wooden knife handles, guitars, and violins.
Additionally, indoor plants will struggle, as many are tropical plants conditioned to pull water out of the air.
Finally, static electricity can build up and zap you or, even worse, fry the circuitry of valuable electronics.
Schedule a consultation for a technician to come and assess your house to determine what humidifier best fits your needs.
"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."

"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
