In winter, the simple act of turning up your thermostat dries out your house. That’s because warm, dry air acts like a giant sponge that soaks up moisture from everything it touches.
The Unpleasant results: You may experience dry skin and chapped lips. Hardwood floors separate at the seams. Woodwork and furniture shrink, warp and crack. The piano goes out of tune. Wallpaper peels at the edges. Fact is that wintertime relative humidity inside the average home hovers around a bone-dry 15%. By contrast, the average humidity in the Sahara Desert is 25%!
Humidifiers do more than just provide you with comfortable levels of humidity for health reasons. Just by adding or subtracting moisture from the air in your home, you can easily make your home more comfortable. With a humidifier, the moisture added to the air of your home can cause it to feel warmer, so you’ll lower your thermostat and, in turn, your utility bill.
