Why Do I Need a Humidifier in My Home?

Whole Home humidifier

Humidifiers, when used in your home, solve multiple problems that can arise. The largest issue that arises is dry air. The specific issues with dry air in a home are numerous with the largest one being health reasons. You will also find structural damage and increase utility bills when dry air is prevalent.

Your Health
Health reasons are one of the large focus points for needing a humidifier. Low humidity can make it easier to catch and transmit cold and flu viruses. Cold dry air can aggravate asthma and static shock contributes to dry itchy skin.

Structural Damage
Second, dry air can lead to structural damage. It can cause walls, woodwork, and floors to crack. Most wood floor warranties do not cover damage caused by water and humidity changes.

Save Money
Third, there’s the impact it can have on your utility bills. Dry air can make you feel colder, and which then leads to your tendency to overheat your home. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), for every degree you heat your home; you add 4 percent to your energy bill. So your whole house humidifier can save you money and make you feel warmer.

So let me summarize, a whole house humidifier can help control and reduce your health issues which in turn makes you feel healthier, protect your home from damage, and increase your comfort while saving you money.
