In Wisconsin, where we have long winters, it can become very dry and irritable in our homes. Proper humidification systems can offset the dry air and make your home more comfortable.
Five benefits of using a humidifier:
1. Soothes Skin
When moisture levels drop below 30%, your skin will start to notice it. Your skin may become dry, flaky, and itchy. Lotions and lip balms are quick fixes but adding humidity back into the air will have a positive lasting effect.
2. Comforts Throat
Just like your skin, your throat can become dry and itchy when there is not enough moisture in the air. Your voice may even become hoarse and you can temporarily lose it until you drink some water. With a humidifier, you will cough less, decrease snoring, and have an overall more comfortable throat.
3. Fewer Sinus Issues
Low humidity will dry out your nasal passages and sinuses causing discomfort, illnesses, and bloody noses. Keeping a controlled amount of humidity in the air will keep your passages working smoothly.
4. Protects Floors & Furniture
Just like your skin and throat, your floors and furniture can become dry without enough humidity. Any fluctuation in humidity levels is not good for your floors and furniture, therefore with a humidification system monitored by a professional, it can stay consistent year-round.
5. Better Plant Environment
If you have house plants, optimal humidity levels with help them thrive as well. They will retain water and be able to last longer without being watered.
