Benefits of Humidification

Humidifiers gently disperse moisture into your home environment, alleviating dry air and making your home more comfortable throughout the year. In arid regions or during the dry winter months, dry indoor air can be detrimental to your home and to your family’s well-being:

What Humidifiers Do and Why This Is Important

  • Add moisture in dry months and maintain a healthy level of humidity throughout the year.
  • Relieve scratchy throat and hay fever symptoms: moisture helps relieve dry skin and eyes, coughs, and scratchy throats, helping you breathe better and sleep more comfortably.
  • Reduce static electricity: beneficial to people, computers, and other home electronics.
  • Maintain your home’s interior: consistent moisture level protects wood floors, plant life and even furniture, musical instruments, paint, and wallpaper.
  • Increase freshness: adding humidity can increase the freshness in your home, alleviating stale “indoor air.”
  • Lower energy bills: moist air feels warmer than dry air, so you can set your thermostat lower while still feeling warm and comfortable.
