Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers

A whole home humidifier or dehumidifier operates with HVAC equipment without having to move a portable device from room to room.

A humidifier will help reduce uncomfortable, dry air during the winter season helping to alleviate breathing concerns and the rough skin it can cause. Air that’s properly saturated feels warmer allowing for temperatures to be lowered saving on energy costs.

When there’s excessive humidity during the summertime, a whole-home dehumidifier greatly reduces dampness making a home seem cooler with a higher thermostat setting, potentially saving more on cooling expenses.

Keystone Heating & AC offers a wide range of humidifiers and dehumidifiers from AprilAire to meet the needs of any home in Racine and Kenosha.
