Dry air causes cracks in skin, sinus irritation, bloody noses, itchy eyes, that annoying static in your hair and shocks when you touch someone. Dry air can also damage your wood floors, plaster, paint, furniture, artwork, electronics and musical instruments.

To find some relief, many people turn to a portable or freestanding humidifier to add moisture to the air. However, these “boxes” can be unattractive in your living areas and labor intensive. A whole home humidifier is a better choice; we will explain why.

Benefits: Do Whole Home Humidifiers Really Work?

Ideally, humidity in your home should be between 40% and 60%, according to experts, like the EPA. A whole home humidifier will automatically adjust to maintain the appropriate level.

Installing a whole home humidifier minimizes the formation of bacteria, dust mites, fungi, and viruses. It also helps reduce respiratory infections and symptoms related to allergies and asthma.

Another benefit is it can help you feel warmer at lower temperatures. This means you can turn your thermostat down and still feel comfy in your home. According to the EPA, you can save up to 4% on your heating bill for every degree you lower your thermostat.

A whole home humidifier protects your home and its contents from the negative impact of dry air; for example, reducing “cupping” in your wood floors, and keeping your guitar and piano in tune.
