Is Your Home Dry? Get A Humidifier.

Photo A 3

Comfort and health are often related, and a lot of that has to do with the humidity level in your home. Did you know that keeping optimal humidity between 30-60% in your home can minimize the formation of viruses and bacteria? Studies show viruses tend to thrive in dry air, which is why wintertime is synonymous with illness.

Dry Air Impacts Your Health

We all know the issues that come with dry air. Sore throat, bloody noses, and dry skin. Dry air can be a byproduct of central heat. As you work to heat up your home, the moisture can be sucked out leaving dry air as a result. This is a primary reason why so many of these symptoms, especially dry skin, pop up during the winter season. 

Dry air can lower your body's immune response as it dries out nasal cavities making airborne viruses and airborne bacteria transmission more likely. 

Dry Air Impacts Your Comfort

Dry indoor air impacts the comfort level of your home as well. Dry skin, chapped lips, and dry eyes are the result of poorly moisturized air. Adding an Aprilaire humidifier into your home can help remedy the ill effects of dry air.

As this humidifier for dry air adds moisture back into your home, it can help increase comfort, health, and energy efficiency. For every four percent increase in humidity, you can drop the temperature of your home by one degree. So if your home's humidity levels are at 26 percent and you want to get it to 50 percent, you can lower your thermostat by 6 degrees. 

With Aprilaire whole-home humidifiers, you can create an environment that’s comfortable and safe for your family. Frisbees is ready to install a humidifier in your home when you are!
