- Skin irritation. When your indoor humidity dips below ideal levels, you will begin to experience irritation of the skin, eyes, nose and throat. Overly dry air causes annoying itching and chapping, sometimes even causing headaches and nosebleeds!
- Static electricity. You know that awful feeling when you try to flip on a light switch or grab a door handle? Static electricity is the culprit and it gets much, much worse when humidity levels in your home are too low.
- Furniture and floor damage. Low humidity zaps the moisture out of wood furniture and floors in your home. This can lead to splits and cracks in your furniture, walls and floors.
- Illnesses. As if the irritation that many people suffer from in low humidity conditions, dry air can also cause or exacerbate respiratory related illnesses.
If you really want to avoid low humidity problems this winter, you need to consider installing a whole house humidifier! Call Approved Comfort to learn more or schedule a consultation today!
