Navigating a Wisconsin winter is about more than just dealing with the cold and snow. It’s also about learning how to deal with dry air. Thankfully, the solution is simple: a whole-home humidifier. The experts at Advanced Comfort Solutions share how these systems soothe dry air-related problems while benefitting your overall health.
What Does a Humidifier Do?
As the cold weather drains moisture from the air, it causes many health and comfort problems including dry skin. A humidifier adds moisture back into your indoor air, balancing out your home humidity levels (which should stay between 40 and 50 percent) and keeping you and your family healthier and more comfortable.
Benefits of a Whole-Home Humidifier
Helps Stop Airborne Viruses. Your indoor air is actually more polluted than the air outside thanks to viruses and contaminants that circulate through your house. By adding moisture to the air, a humidifier helps slow the movement of those germs, which can help keep you healthier (and even help keep allergies at bay).
Makes Your Home Feel Warmer. The more moisture in your home’s indoor air, the more humid it becomes. And the more humid it becomes, the warmer your house will feel. This is not only a welcome relief during frigid winter temperatures, but it may also lead to lower heating costs. After all, when you feel warmer, you don’t have to turn up the thermostat as high to compensate.
Protects Your Home’s Health. Balanced humidity levels benefit more than just your family’s health—it also helps your house. Dry air sucks the moisture from wood, which can lead to the loosening of wooden floor joints, wooden doors changing in size (making them hard to open or close), and furniture arms and legs cracking. A humidifier helps prevent wood from deteriorating and keeps it in its best possible shape.
