When cold weather rolls in, so does dry air. Low indoor humidity can cause various issues for you and your house. You don’t have to resign yourself to living with low humidity. A whole-house humidifier will raise your indoor humidity to a more comfortable level. You’ll see improvements throughout your home.
Relieve Respiratory Symptoms
Dry air can give you a scratchy throat and a stuffy nose. If you have allergies or asthma, the effects may be especially pronounced. Some people struggle with snoring or winter sinus infections as a result. When the humidity level is properly balanced, you’ll find it easier to breathe comfortably.
Improve Skin and Hair
Dry air can draw moisture from your skin. It may feel rough, itchy or irritated. Your knuckles may even crack. Your hair can experience a similar drying effect, and it may break more easily. Humidifying your home can reverse these troubles and give you softer, more manageable skin and hair.
Protect Wood Furnishings
Air that’s too dry may also pull moisture out of the wood furniture, floors or trim in your house. That can lead to cracks in the material. If you want your wood furnishings to last longer, consider installing a whole-home humidifier.
Overcome Static Shocks
In winter, it’s common to get a painful jolt when you touch a doorknob or a light switch. When there’s low relative humidity, charged electrons often build up on surfaces, including your skin. Humidified air works as a conductor that allows electrons to move more easily, so they don’t accumulate in one place. As a result, you’ll receive fewer shocks.
