Humidifiers will help you feel warmer and keep humidity levels low
There are several reasons why you don’t want the air in your home to be too dry. Here are just some of the types of problems that can result.
- When the air inside a home is below 30 percent relative humidity, that can lead to physical problems such as throat and nose issues. Dry indoor air also poses the risk of static shocks that can seriously damage – or even ruin – sensitive electronic equipment.
- When dry air is heated, it can cause gaps around the frames of windows and doors. This will allow more cold air into a home that will drive up heating bills by robbing your furnace of efficiency.
- Dry air can also lead to cracks in ceilings and walls, as well as separate wood in furniture, floors and trim.
If you have a humidifier, however, you can keep the relative humidity of your home around the recommended 35 to 45 percent. This will help you feel warmer when the weather is cold so you won’t have to turn your furnace thermostat down as much.
