Why Your Home Should Have a Whole-House Humidifier

The time you spend inside your home should always be times of relaxation. If you’ve been feeling uncomfortable in your own home, though, it might be due to a problem with your indoor air quality. More specifically, there might not be enough moisture in the air, especially during the dryer winter season.

To correct the moisture levels in your home’s air, you should consider getting a whole-house humidifier installed. This unique piece of equipment integrates with your home’s HVAC system and a water supply line to effectively increase humidity levels automatically throughout your house. You might have seen or used a single-room humidifier before and noticed that as soon as you open the door, the small unit’s ability to provide adequate humidity is lost. A whole-house humidifier can effectively provide the proper levels of humidity throughout all of the rooms in your home.

Why Should You Get a Whole-House Humidifier?

  1. Fight off the common cold: Air with higher humidity levels makes it difficult for airborne germs and pathogens to travel from person to person. Germs in the air cling to the damp air molecules, making them too heavy to float anymore. Together, the air molecule and the germ stuck to it fall to the floor, where you are much less likely to breathe it in or come into contact with it.
  2. Lessen allergies: For much of the same reasons why humidity can stifle airborne germs, it can also dampen airborne allergens. If someone in your family is allergic to dust, dander, pollens, and other contaminants that float through the air, using a whole-house humidifier can bring them instant relief without the need of taking a prescription medicine while at home.
  3. Soften your skin: Few things feel worse than dry skin during the winter. The problem is caused by low humidity levels drying out sensitive areas of your skin, like your lips, eyes, and hands. Humidifiers put moisture into the air, revitalizing your skin whenever you are home.
  4. Feel cozier: Moist air molecules are able to absorb and carry heat better than dry air molecules. As a result, air at higher humidity levels stays warmer for longer. You might have noticed this phenomenon while visiting a humid area in the South, where the temperature might read something like 75 degrees Fahrenheit but feel closer to 90 due to higher levels of humidity.
  5. Eliminates static electricity: Dry air is associated with high amounts of static electricity, which can gather on your clothing, in your hair, and elsewhere. We have all felt the annoyance of static-filled hair and how it can mess up our appearance. Get static under control with a humidifier to carefully adjust and perfect the humidity levels in your house.
  6. Protect wooden floors and furniture: If you have noticed cracks forming in your wood floors or furniture, then it might not be caused by someone dropping something heavy. No, it is more likely to be caused by a lack of humidity in your home. Dry, low-humidity air is just as bad for wooden furniture and flooring as it is for you. Installing a whole-house humidifier will offer around-the-clock added protection to your furniture and floors by maintaining a healthy level of humidity in the air.
