Doesn’t your home deserve a gift this holiday season? It keeps you safe, comfortable, and protected from the outside world. And asks for nothing in return. The one item that we recommend every house in Central Indiana should have, but many don’t, is an air humidifier as part of its ventilation system.
Indiana winters bring extremely dry ambient air. Heating systems remove additional moisture from the air inside the house.
A whole-house humidifier adds moisture to the air throughout your entire house. This extra moisture in the air will help you feel better and avoid getting sick. Because dry air is a potential source of many ailments, an air humidifier is a good option as a preventive measure.
A humidifier can significantly prevent the spread of flu and germs. It can help to eliminate a dry nose, itchy, cracked skin, and many allergy and asthma problems. Many viruses that cause sickness can only live in a low humidity environment, so the viruses will die when the moisture level is raised. Additionally, a low humidity environment can weaken your immune system and allow you to become more susceptible to infection.
Many people don’t realize other benefits that running a humidifier in their homes offers, which include extending the life of the interior of the home and reduced energy costs. Also, consider the loss in value because your expensive furniture has dried out and you will understand the benefits of a humidifier more clearly. Before your wooden chairs start to squeak and wobble when anyone sits in them, make sure your humidifier is working properly.
