An overly dry home isn’t just uncomfortable — it can also have an effect on your health and the energy efficiency of your heating system. Have you considered installing a whole house humidifier? Doing so offers the following rewards:
1. Improved health
Low-humidity environments can make it easier for viruses to thrive. Therefore, if your home is excessively dry, you may more easily catch the flu or contract an infection. Keeping your house sufficiently humid can help you avoid these ailments.
2. Increased comfort
Dry skin is just the start. If the air in your home doesn’t contain enough moisture, you could end up with a dry nose and sore throat as well. If you or someone in your family suffers from asthma and/or allergies, over-dry air can make symptoms even worse.
3. Energy savings
A dry, cool home can be difficult to heat up — even after you’ve turned up the thermostat. Adding moisture to the air can help you feel warmer. You won’t have to turn on the heat as often, resulting in a lower energy bill during the winter months.
