If you’re one of the more than 50 million Americans who experience allergies each year or one of the 25 million Americans who suffer from asthma, you may already know the concerns that come with too much moisture in your air. Did you know air can also be too dry?
As your heating system warms your home in the winter, it also removes needed moisture from your air. For an ideal balance of health and comfort in your home, the proper amount of indoor humidity is between 30 and 50 percent. Too little moisture can be every bit as harmful to your health and comfort as too much.
Excessive dryness is known to cause significant personal discomfort, with symptoms such as dry skin, itchy eyes, coughing, and bloody noses. Humidity below the ideal zone also allows the flu and other viruses to live longer outside the body. When you add a persistent flu bug to already-dry nasal passages, your chances of illness increase significantly.
A whole-home humidifier adds water vapor to the heated air circulated by your HVAC system. The extra moisture will make you feel more comfortable while it reduces the lifespan of the flu virus.
You can also save money on your utility bills, as the increased humidity brings an insulating effect that allows you to lower your thermostat.
