Do I Need A Humidifier

Do I Need A Humidifier?

During the winter, the air in many homes has less humidity than it would normally.  Dry air can damage furniture (especially wood furniture), wood floors and sensitive musical instruments. It can also cause dry, itchy skin and irritated throats and eyes.  Basically dehydration of the body.  A lack of moisture in the air is also responsible for the stining static shocks that happen when you touch something. Humidifiers help fight the negative effects of dry air by producing moisture in your house. This moisture keeps your nasal passages and throat from drying out.  If you’re always coughing and congested it’s probably a good idea to install a humidifier in your home.  Talk to your local humidifier dealer if you have any questions.

Am I able to install a Humidifier in My Home?

If you have a furnace or boiler you should be able to install a humidifier.  When you have a furnace the humidifier uses your existing furnace and ductwork to deliver humidity to the entire house. Also, something to keep in mind is that humidifying a house which is heated with a boiler is more difficult than with a furnace.

Which Humidifier Should I Get?
