Dry, itchy skin? Sore throat? Sinus irritation? All are symptoms of too little humidity in the home. When it comes to home comfort, nothing affects your body’s perception more than the humidity level. Industry experts even state that keeping your home’s humidity between 30-60% can help reduce the effects of many unwanted conditions.
How Humidifiers Work
A humidifier adds moisture to the air in your home by evaporating water and distributing it through your duct system. Humidifiers are most commonly used in the cooler months. Adding a humidifier to your system can benefit not only your health but your home as well! We’ve broken down some of the top benefits below:
- During the cooler months, a humidifier will help you feel more comfortable at a lower indoor temperature, therefore, saving you money on your utility costs
- Decrease allergy and asthma attacks
- Eliminate dry, flakey skin and dry nasal passages
- Large gaps in wood flooring will be reduced
- Bacteria and viruses do not thrive at proper humidity settings
- Eliminate static electricity shocks
- Most humidifiers operate quietly and are easy to maintain
- Dogs and cats have less static, and the increased humidity will make them feel more comfortable
