The relative humidity in the Sahara Desert is 25%, but did you know that your winter household humidity might be as low as 5 - 15%? Overly dry air can cause itchy, cracked skin, dry nasal passages, annoying shocks from static electricity, and cracked woodwork. Adding a humidifier will add comfort to your home and eliminate these irritating conditions for your family.
There are a lot of humidifier products that claim to deliver moisture to the air in your home, but how do you know which ones really work? Comparing humidification delivery (the amount of moisture that passes through the device and into the air) is a great place to start.
While many portable humidifiers claim to deliver a set number of gallons of moisture per day, the truth is they will only deliver as much moisture as you put in them, and re-filling them with water can be a hassle.
As the moisture from indoor air evaporates, the temperature in our home feels colder. In the winter, that means you will likely turn up the thermostat to feel warmer, so your system will use extra energy. By putting moisture back in the air, a humidifier allows you to remain comfortable at a lower thermostat setting, which lowers your energy costs. Add a thermostat and adjust temperature and humidity with one convenient control.
