For many Americans, dry air is a winter problem. But for many Colorado residents, dry high-altitude air can be an issue year-round. Fortunately, this is a problem that’s easily remedied with the use of a home humidifier.A humidifier moistens the air, either in a limited area or throughout a home. The moistened air makes breathing more pleasant and alleviates dry-air-related comfort issues issues such as nosebleeds and congested nasal passages. When you have a cold or the flu, a humidifier can be especially helpful in relieving symptoms. In fact, recent studies have shown that dryness in the air can even speed transmission of cold and other viruses.
If you’re not sure about your home’s humidity level, here are a few signs that might indicate dry air:
Dry air can cause more than discomfort. If prolonged, it can cause prized wood floors and furniture to split and crack.
If the lack of moisture in your home’s air is something you need to address, you have two basic options: one or more portable humidifiers or whole-house humidification. Although portable humidifiers are relatively inexpensive, they are effective in only a limited area. Further, if a portable humidifier isn’t diligently maintained, it can invite mold growth and actually create instead of relieve any health issue. Whole-house humidification, on the other hand, takes care of every room in your house, because it’s part of your central HVAC system. It maintains a constant ideal humidity, and maintenance is simple.
