Winter weather means cracked skin and dry interior air quality, but it doesn’t have to. A whole house humidifier can improve comfort year-round and benefit your health, as well as your dry skin. Learn the biggest benefits of a whole house humidifier.
What is a Whole House Humidifier?
A whole house humidifier is a larger version of the portable humidifiers you may use in a single room. Where portable humidifiers can be turned on and off or adjusted, whole house humidifiers integrate with your ductwork and thermostat to provider greater control over system operation. By adjusting your thermostat, you can easily control home humidity levels.
Health Benefits of a Whole House Humidifier
Top health benefits of a whole house humidifier include:
- Better breathing: Dry winter air can aggravate asthma and respiratory issues. With a humidifier, everyone can breathe easier.
- Comfort: Dry skin, sore throats – dry air plays a part in these winter health issues. A humidifier improves everyone’s comfort.
- Stronger immune system: Viruses thrive in dry environments and immunity lowers. With a humidifier, you’ll boost immune health and reduce transmission of cold and flu.
- Along with health benefits, you will enjoy lower utility costs, since a moist home feels warmer than a dry one.
