Humidifiers are an important component of heating and cooling systems. Dry air is very uncomfortable and makes people and especially children more vulnerable to respiratory diseases. Especially during winter, when the heating system is on, the air tends to be excessively dry inside the home, and that can even make the air seem a little colder than it actually is. The ideal humidity inside the house is around 45-50 %.
Without a humidifier, during winter, the humidity in most houses is around 30%. Low humidity has three major effects:
- it makes your skin and mucous membranes very dry and makes you uncomfortable;
- creates static energy;
- makes you feel colder than it actually is;
Humidifiers can help you save money on heating and also provides a healthier environment for you and your family.
