In winter months it is especially important to add moisture to the air in your home. Air in your home that is too dry can be uncomfortable to breathe, and can damage wood products like flooring, pianos, picture frames and cabinetry. Dry winter air can drive down the relative humidity level in your home to as low as 15%, which is drier than the air in most deserts. A properly sized humidifier can help keep the humidity in your home at the proper level.
Low humidity can also cause you to feel colder at a temperature you would normally consider comfortable. The dry air pulls moisture from the body via evaporation, cooling you off- just like it works when you are sweating. By maintaining a proper humidity level in the home, you may find yourself making less trips to turn up the thermostat and thus finding lower energy bills every month.
