Did you know that your home can be drier than the Sahara Desert during the cold Winter months? Other than temperature, controlling indoor humidity levels can have the greatest impact on your comfort and health.
Low relative humidity can make you more susceptible to catching a cold. Flu viruses have been linked to speedier progression and transmission in dry air.
The respiratory infections caused by cold and flu viruses are the leading trigger of asthma in children. Cold, dry air can aggravate asthma on it’s own.
Air that is not properly humidified can cause dry, itchy skin, eyes and throat.
Dry air can cause walls, woodwork, and hardwood floors to crack which can be costly to repair. Static shock can cause damage to electronic equipment.
Dry air can actually make you feel colder at normal temperatures. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, for every degree you increase your thermostat setting, you add four percent to your energy bill.
