Humidifiers are powerful machines that work hard to drastically improve the air in your home. Does the site of dust floating through the air not only frustrate you but also make it hard to breathe? A humidifier can help.
Dry air makes breathing more difficult than it has to be for those who suffer from allergies, asthma, and whole host of other respiratory issues. During the winter especially, forced air gas heating can make dry skin even more irritating than it already is. Furthermore, dry air can also lead to dry throats and noses which left untreated can become sinusitis. Dry air isn’t just irritating, it can actually damage your home’s expensive wood furniture, wood floors, and paint.
Humidifiers do the opposite job of De-humidifier. Instead of stripping the air of excess moisture, a humidifier adds moisture to the air. A humidifier works with your furnace to add much needed moisture to too dry air. During the winter when humidity drops, your furnace, space heater, or fireplace cannot produce enough moisture , leading to dry air. A humidifier simulates the right amount of humidity needed to feel comfortable. You will notice that your family experiences fewer colds, improved respiratory health. You will also get much needed relief from the stretchy, itchy feeling that comes with dry skin.
