What Does a Humidifier Do?
It helps balance out your home’s humidity levels by adding moisture into the air. While you might think of humidity as a bad thing, it’s actually necessary for both your comfort and health—as long as there isn’t too much. Keeping levels balanced (ideally, humidity should fall between 30 and 50 percent) can help you avoid problems such as frequent colds, dry air, and excessive static electricity.
What Are the Benefits of a Humidifier?
Tired of reapplying lotion to your hands every hour so they don’t itch or crack? Try an air humidifier instead. The moisture it releases can help soothe your skin and stop you from spending a fortune on moisturizer.
Better Respiratory Health
Humidity not only helps soothe dry skin, but it can also help you breathe easier. Humid air supports and protects the mucus in your nose, offering a natural way to clear congestion. These systems can also help put an end to bloody noses and even assist in curbing your snoring.
Adds Warmth to Your Home
Humidified air simply feels warmer than dry air does. So, when you run your humidifier, you’re actually helping increase your home’s temperature. And when you feel warmer, you’re less likely to keep turning up the thermostat. Over time, that can lead to reduced energy bills—a bonus benefit of adding a humidifier.
Keeps Your Home Healthy
Just like your skin, wood is easily susceptible to cracking from dry air. Keeping your moisture levels balanced can help prevent your wood furnishings from cracking and shrinking.
