Whole home humidifiers can definitely assist in bettering the air conditions in your home. These devices emit water vapor or steam and increase moisture levels in the air. They can even help with symptoms of a cold or other respiratory conditions like asthma, etc. You want the humidity in your home to be around anywhere from 30-50%. A hygrometer will measure the level of humidity in your home and most humidifiers have them built in! If it’s too low or too high, problems can occur!

If the humidity is too low:

  • Dry skin
  • Irritated nasal passages and throat
  • Itchy eyes
  • Snoring
  • Respiratory complications

If the humidity is too high:

  • Condensation on surfaces including walls and floors
  • Growth of bacteria, molds or dust mites
  • Respiratory complications or flare-ups

Did you know that a humidifier could even help save you money? Savings are a bonus of a comfortable home. When your moisture levels are too low, your heating and cooling system will have to work twice as hard to create an ideal comfort level. Having a humidifier installed in your overly dry home, will assist in lowering your energy bills simply by keeping your humidity levels on point.
