The air from your furnace has probably kept you toasty warm over the past few months, but it’s likely also dried out the air in your house. If you’re finding that your skin is drier, your eyes are a little itchier and your hardwood is losing its luster, consider adding a humidifier in your home.
A humidifier, whether it’s portable or a whole-house humidifier, is a relatively inexpensive investment that will make a huge improvement to the air quality in your home. Maintaining a household humidity level of 30% – 50% will help eliminate the prevalence of dry skin, reduce the allergy symptoms, and protect your home and contents.
Say goodbye to dry skin
A total downfall of winter is dry skin and chapped lips, caused by a lack of water in the skin. Adding a humidifier to your home will boost the moisture in the air and your skin.
No more itchy eyes
Aside from making your skin feel and look better, increasing the moisture in your indoor air can alleviate the symptoms associated with colds, sinus problems, dry eyes and allergies. On top of that, it can reduce the spread of certain viruses and bacteria that thrive in dry air.
Avoid cracks altogether
Dry air can cause wood furniture and hardwood floors to crack and warp, and can damage other contents, including instruments. Adding a humidifier in your house will help keep everything in mint condition.
