3 Reasons Why You Should Get A Humidifier This Winter

Posted on February 1st, 2019

The winters here in Utah are very dry. Maintaining the ideal indoor humidity level is important to ensure that your home isn’t growing mold or mildew.  Not only is this hard on your home, but it can also cause a myriad of health problems for those living in your home.

Why is having a humidifier important? These three reasons might surprise you.

The TOP 3 Reasons why you should Install a Whole Home Humidifier:

1. Improve your health.

dry-skinOur bodies are made up of between 60 and 65% of water. When the humidity levels in our home are below 40% that causes our bodies to work harder to retain moisture. Often times we end up with chronic dry coughs, stuffy noses, very dry and cracking skin, headaches from dehydration, and a multitude of other unpleasant symptoms. Our nasal passages dry out, leaving us more susceptible to colds and sinus infections.

2. Protect the wood in your home.

Warped FloorMany homeowners do not realize what the proper humidity levels are for a home. Ideal humidity levels should be between 45 and 65%. With each winter the loss of moisture to a home dries out wood and can actually cause walls to shift. It is also damaging to any other wood materials or items in the home.

3. Maintain correct humidity levels.

If too much humidity is happening in your home, it can cause mold and mildew to grow. We definitely don’t want that! Humidifiers are also known for reducing dust and dust mites in your home, keeping those with dust allergies happy and requiring you to dust less. There’s also nothing worse than being shocked just from walking across the room. Humidifiers help to eliminate that from happening by maintaining the proper humidity levels.

Don’t let the cold dry air harm your home and family this year. Give us a call and we’ll come assess your home and humidity levels to see if a humidifier is a good investment.
