What Can a Humidifier Do for My Home

Background Image
Most people know how terrible high humidity can feel during the summer, which is why they wish the weather would switch to a “dry heat.” Although a dry heat brings some relief during hot spells, dry air in general isn’t good for your home—especially during winter when the cold temperatures cause a plunge in moisture. To find the right balance of humidity in your home, you’ll need to have professionals install a humidifier. Here are three benefits your home will receive from a humidifier. When you think that humidifiers in Blaine, MN will help solve moisture problems in your house, contact our indoor air quality specialists at Air Mechanical, Inc.

Here Are Some Benefits From a Humidifier

  • Better indoor comfort: Finding a balance in humidity inside your house will help you feel more comfortable with the temperature in cold weather, and consequently you’ll need to run your heating system much less. The same way that high humidity makes people feel hotter, low humidity makes people feel colder. The dry air absorbs moisture from your body, and this causes you to feel that the air is colder. With humidity in the 33%–55% range, your indoor comfort will increase during cold weather, and you can give your heater some time off.
  • Improved health: Low humidity is linked to a number of health issues, such as dry skin and itching; breathing trouble and respiratory infections; congestion and nose irritation; and the rapid spread of flus and colds. Dry air is also an environment that favors the growth of a number of viruses. You can expect fewer colds and other infections if you have your air balanced with a proper humidifier.
  • Improve your furnishings: A house with too little moisture in its air will develop cracks along wood fixtures and warping of floorboards and walls as moisture is pulled out of them (the same way it pulls moistures from your body). This will not only affect your home’s construction material, but it can also affect your possessions as well. Wooden musical instruments are particularly subject to the cracking and warping from lack of moisture in the air.
