Protect Your Respiratory System with a Whole Home Humidifier
Ever Notice How Dry Your Throat and Skin Feel During the Winter Months? Or How Scratchy Your Skin Feels?
Although winter weather is often blamed for these problems, these are also common signs of low humidity in your home.
Low humidity can cause or aggravate respiratory problems, dry out nasal passages, and make you more susceptible to colds or the flu. Humidifying your home to provide proper moisture levels will help alleviate these symptoms.
Not only will correcting home humidity make you feel better, it can also reduce your energy bills. The correct humidity in your home will make the air feel warmer and remove that drafty feeling. As a result, you will find yourself lowering your thermostat and saving energy.
Dry air can also cause problems that are not health-related:
- Static electricity is a direct result of dry air. In addition to causing painful shocks, it can damage computers and other electronic equipment.
- Hardwood floors lose moisture and contract when the air in a home is extremely dry. This can cause the floor to separate at the seams.
- Houseplants suffer from dryness caused by low humidity.
- Wallpaper may peel at the edges if the air in a home is excessively dry.
