Whole-House Humidifiers in the Twin Cities

Aprilaire Air PurifierOver-dry air can be unhealthy for your family and have damaging effects on your home. At Genz-Ryan, we offer a variety of whole-house humidifiers that work along with your central air system to provide humidified air throughout your home.

A whole-house humidifier is installed directly to your central new or existing heating and cooling system. Humidity is introduced into your home’s air in the form of water vapor, which prevents minerals from entering the air in your home and potentially into your lungs. Water is supplied to the distribution tray, allowing it to flow evenly across the water panel. The resulting humidified air is then distributed via your heating and cooling system ductwork throughout your home.

Humidifiers help by ensuring that your entire home has just the right amount of moisture for the ultimate in protection and comfort. Whole-house humidifiers help prevent premature aging of your home’s structure, provide optimum comfort and can protect respiratory systems against viruses and bacteria.

What Are the Core Benefits of a Whole-House Humidifier?

Every humidifier product provides these important key benefits for your family and home.


A whole-house humidifier can reduce the chance of upper respiratory problems. “Humidity reduces the incidence of respiratory infections and speeds recovery from the common cold.” — William J. Hitschler, MD, Archives of Otolaryngology (study of diseases of the ears, nose, sinuses, larynx, mouth, and throat)


When the air in your home becomes too dry, your body is robbed of precious moisture, leaving you and your family with dry, itchy skin, and dry nose and throat symptoms. A whole-house humidifier can help alleviate all of these uncomfortable symptoms and more.


Dry air pulls moisture from walls and hardwood floors, which leads to damaging, unsightly cracks. Valuable furniture, artwork, and electronics are also subject to the adverse effects of dry air. A whole-house humidifier can protect your home and its contents by supplying the correct amount of moisture to your home’s air.

Energy Savings

Most homeowners turn up the thermostat because they feel cold (especially here in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area). A whole-house humidifier allows you to feel warmer at lower thermostat settings, saving up to 4% on your heating bill for every degree you lower your thermostat, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

Automatic Digital Humidifier Control

To monitor outdoor temperature and indoor humidity levels while providing convenient troubleshooting and maintenance reminders, a whole-house humidifier
Humidification Controls features truly automatic control, so there’s never a need to control the humidifier manually — though it can be installed in manual mode if desired.
