Why you need a Humidifier:

AprilAir HumidifierIf you have proper humidity levels, you will also feel warmer in your home with lower temperatures. It affects not only you and your family, but it effects your furniture, hardwood floors, trim work, cabinetry, and other items in the home that rely on proper moisture levels. In fact, some hardwood floor companies will not warranty their floors if proper humidity levels are not maintained. Low humidity levels, especially in the winter months can dry out the air which will dry out your skin, cause static electricity, give you chapped lips and dry hands, and most importantly it dries out the nasal passages which is your bodies first defense in keeping viruses and bacteria from entering your body.
It is a common misconception that cold air “winter” is the cause of catching the common cold or flu. While the cold and flu are more common during this time is not due to the cold air temperature. It is due to the cold air being dry. The influenza virus and rhinovirus have a better chance of surviving and spreading in low humidity environments. In the United States, colds are more common in the fall and winter. This is mostly due to factors such as the start of the school year and the tendency for people to remain indoors. Inside, air tends to be drier. Dry air dries up the nasal passages, which can lead to infection. Humidity levels also tend to be lower in colder weather. Cold viruses are better able to survive in low humidity conditions. The ideal range of humidity through the cold weather months is somewhere between 30-50%. To low and the air is to dry, to high and mold will start to grow and dust mites will reproduce at an accelerated rate.

Whole House Humidifiers and Your Home:

Your home walls, doors, cabinets and furniture is most likely made from wood - and contains some moisture. In the winter season, dry air from furnace systems sucks that moisture out.  This results in wood shrinks and cracks. Hardwood floors separate at the seams, furniture shrinks and cracks, and doors warp.
