Welcome to winter. Wonderland though it may be with the snow, the good cheer, and the picturesque front yard, the cold, dry air the season brings can wreak havoc on your health and your home. So what’s to be done? Humidifiers change quality of your home life for the better, across the board. Here are just a few of the top reasons to install a humidifier in your home today.
Humidifiers add moisture to the air. That’s their job. One of the main reasons that’s important is to prevent illness from spreading during cold and flu season, the small hairs in our noses need to be able to move to collect bacteria and keep out germs. Moisture in the air also diminishes the frequency of bloody noses for this reason.
Our voices are one of our most invaluable assets. Dry air can seriously damage our vocal cords. Keep your voice in tip-top condition by humidifying the air to lubricate the muscles in your throat. The same is true of nasal passages. And clean, clear nasal passages mean no more snoring!
Protect the furniture and wood floors in your home with a humidifier. Dry air causes wood to crack and eventually split.
Dry air is colder air. Air gauged at 70 degrees Fahrenheit with a 10% humidity level feels like 67 degrees. However, air with a 50% humidity level at the same temperature feels like it’s 69 degrees. Those two degrees make a world of difference not just for your comfort, but also for your heating bill over the long winter months!
