In the winter months it’s necessary for you to turn up the heat and get warm and cozy to protect you from the bitter cold of the outdoors. While the benefits of heat far outweigh the negatives you could still run into one common problem; dry indoor air. Dry indoor air is really just low humidity levels in the home.


If you’re asking yourself if the humidity levels in your house are too low, some possible symptoms include: dry eyes, dry or itchy skin, increased static electricity, sore throat, nosebleeds, and/or the temperature of the air “feels” colder than the thermometer indicates. If you are experiencing this problem in your own home, it might be beneficial to look into some of the following options:

  • Make sure your heating system isn’t over sized for your home. If the heat capacity in your system is too great, it will over heat your home and dry out the air. A service technician can come out and evaluate whether or not your system’s size is appropriate.
  • If it is determined that your system size is appropriate, it might be a good option to have a whole house humidifier installed on your supply ductwork. A whole house humidifier sends humidity through the ducts which will blow through your registers throughout your home.
  • Another option is to have a 2 stage system or a Multi stage system installed. This kicks down the heat from the burners and reduces high temperatures. In turn you will be saving energy and keeping more moisture in the air.

If you are experiencing dry air it would be beneficial to have a HVAC technician inspect your home. Here at Professor Gatsby’s Heating and Cooling we can provide our customers with all of these services. We understand how important it is that your family feels comfortable year round. If you are interested in any of these services please reach out and give us a call!

Their techs were clean and punctual. AC unit wasn't working. Called them on a hot, sunny Sunday and they took care of everything same day. Very knowledgeable. Explained each step and what needed to be repaired. Reasonably priced too! Would HIGHLY recommend this company!

Called on an extremely hot evening with little to no hope of having anyone come out. Matt said he would be out within the hour and he arrived within thirty minutes. He assessed the problem and then explained it to myself and my room mate. He set off to work and it was dark outside. He continuously kept us updated on the progress and was extremely knowledgeable in helping us understand what went wrong. Matt was amazing and will be recommended to anyone and everyone for his prompt service, his expertise and his saving the day. I am switching over to Professor Gatsby now for all hearing and air conditioning needs! Thank you for your help!

Very professional and clean! Matt and his crew did a wonderful job. They replaced our entire HVAC system, added a second return duct and installed a new water heater. Now our system is now well balanced on all floors and with the recent hot weather it really showed. After a few days Matt followed up with us just to see how everything was working and if I had any concerns. I said I couldn't be happier with everything overall. I would definitely recommend Professor Gatsby's.

So Matt came out at 9pm on Sunday night to check my AC. He diagnosed and fixed the issue in an hour and charged me an extremely reasonable fee. I'm extremely happy we found this company because if I ever have another issue I don't have to be nervous about who might come out. I'd pay what he charged me just for the peace of mind. Extremely knowledgeable and trustworthy

Saturday morning ... snow expected in the afternoon ... and ... of course ... our heater goes out. We are fortunate enough to know the owner of Professor Gatsby's Heating and Cooling and he was our first call. I can not rave enough about not only the quality of the service ... but the ethics that drive the company are unsurpassed ... especially in their industry. I would not, and do not, hesitate to recommend Professor Gatsby's for all of your heating and cooling needs. Reputable, reasonable, responsible, caring and ethical. What else could you possible ask for in a heating and cooling contractor? Thanks, Matt ... and continued success to you and your company!!!
