3 Problems Addressed by Humidifiers

Salt Lake City, UT, has always suffered from dry air, and that can impact your household comfort levels as much as the temperature can. We generally need relative humidity levels to stay between 30% and 50% in order to stay comfortable. When it drops below that – and it often does here – then it can create all kinds of problems. The solution is a formal humidifier, which adds ambient moisture to the air and circulates it via the ducts in your central air conditioning system. It requires access to your home’s water supply and a professional technician to install it properly, but it can also address a number of problems that may be plaguing your household. We’ve listed three of them below.

1.     More Comfortable Air

The most obvious benefit is improved comfort levels in your home. You won’t get shocked by static electricity as often for instance, and your skin won’t have that dry, itchy feeling that comes from excessively dry air. This is especially important in the winter, when cool temperatures contribute to increasingly dry air, and the simple act moving through your house can feel uncomfortable.

2.     Fewer Incidents of Illness

Dry air can affect your throat and sinuses, which is your body’s first line of defense against sickness and disease. Your nose and throat won’t feel so dry and scratchy with a humidifier in your home, but more importantly, you may see a drop in the number of times you and your family come down with colds.

3.     Less Damage to Your Furnishings

Dry air can cause wooden furniture to crack and peel, dry up wallpaper glue and otherwise wreak havoc with your home furnishings. A comfortable level of humidity, established by a whole-house humidifier, will reduce that damage and help your furnishings last longer.
