Overly dry environments can increase the likelihood of infections. In addition, many viruses thrive in low-humidity environments. Installing a whole house humidifier can decrease your chances of catching the flu, colds and other respiratory ailments. Add humidity to the air and improve your health and well-being.
The winter months can really take a toll on our bodies. The cold weather can make our skin dry and itchy. Overly dry air can also aggravate asthma and allergy symptoms and lead to dry noses and sore throats. Adding moisture to the air with a whole house humidifier can help eliminate these problems.
Dry air can do a lot of damage to your home. It can split wood floors, crack paint, peel wallpaper, ruin furniture and dry out instruments like pianos. Supplying your home with the proper amount of humidity can protect the contents of your home from the adverse effects of dry air.
