Humidifiers will keep your home more comfortable during the heating season. They help combat bloody noses, dry skin, and reduce static electricity. Some virus (like influenza) depends on a dry environment to live. A humidifier can reduce your family’s chances of contracting these types of viruses. Over-dry air can aggravate asthma and allergy symptoms which lead to dry noses, sore throats, and cracked, itchy skin. Dry air can damage things in your home like plaster, hard wood floors, and furniture. Humidity makes your home feel warmer which means you can be comfortable at a lower temperature. There are many health benefits, energy savings, and comforts associated with whole home humidifiers.
