Humidifiers: Why You Should Have One in Your Home

When the first chill hits the air in winter, some of us run straight for our humidifiers because we know what an asset they are. They keep our noses from running and bleeding in cold weather, and they keep our skin and lips from becoming dry and chapped. Plus, they promote a healthier environment that keeps the flu and cold away.

In fact, when properly maintained and used correctly, humidifiers can decrease the amount you (or the person in bed next you) snores. So it might surprise you to know that many people don’t have one. The truth is, many people don’t know why they should. Let’s take a detailed look at why you should have a humidifier and how to choose the best one for you.

Who needs a humidifier?

Some people haven’t invested in a humidifier because they aren't sure that they really need one. Of course, people who have breathing problems such as asthma or extremely sensitive allergies, have most likely been told by someone in the medical field that dry air will aggravate these conditions, and one of the best solutions is a humidifier. But that doesn't mean that they're they only people who can benefit from them.

  • You can save money on your energy bill because when the humidity level is too low, people tend to feel colder and crank up the heat. When you do this for a few months in a row, you'll notice it on your bill.
  • You can give your electronics and home longevity. When you're in control of the humidity levels in your home, you can make sure that objects such as paintings, electronics, hardwood furniture and floors, and more get the right amount of moisture. Too much or too little will cost you down the road in repairs and replacements.
  • You get relief from those ailments that come with cold weather. Even if you don’t have a condition that fluctuates in the winter, having the proper humidity level will keep your skin from drying out, your eyes from being itchy, and all of those irritations that come with the cold. Have you ever wondered why a steamy shower feels so good for a sore throat? It's the humidity level.

What are the types of humidifiers?

A whole-home humidifier is a perfect solution for most people because you focus on your entire living space and not just one section of it. Plus, you don't have to lug around a portable unit from room to room. The maintenance is simple, and you have a fully automatic digital control, so as the weather changes, so will your settings. This means you never have to worry about monitoring your system as the temperature fluctuates.

The steam humidifier will be separate from your HVAC system and can cater to homes large and small. It's easy to use and also comes with an automatic digital control. However, if you prefer to manually adjust the settings, you can do that too.

Take the time to schedule an appointment with an SSI specialist today. They can help you choose the best humidifier for your home. And once you finally get one, you'll wonder why you didn't do it sooner.
