Your heating and air conditioning system can do a lot, but they can’t add moisture to the dry, winter air. If you’ve considered adding a humidifier to your HVAC system, now’s the time. Take a look at four great reasons you should add one this winter.
#1: Improved Health
When the air in your home drops below the ideal relative humidity level, you risk getting sick. Viruses and bacteria thrive in cool, dry environments. When you add a humidifier, you reduce your chances of getting colds and flu.
#2: Feel Better
When the air in your home is dry, you’ll feel it in your throat, your sinuses, your eyes, and your skin. You’ll feel dry, irritated nasal passages, dry, scratchy throat, dry, itchy skin, and even a dry cough. Adding humidity can relieve all of these symptoms and help you feel better all winter.
#3: Lower Your Energy Bills
Humid air feels warmer than dry air. Adding a humidifier will make your home feel warmer and more comfortable so you can use less heat and spend less on your monthly energy bills.
#4: Improved Sleep
Dry air can lead to an irritated respiratory system, which can lead to snoring and poor sleep. Adding a humidifier to your HVAC system can reduce snoring, cut down on dry-throat coughs, and help you sleep better.
