In our blog post last week, we discussed how you can combat too much humidity in the home. However, as stated last week, humidity is not usually a large problem in our area. In fact, dry air is more of an issue, causing problems for not only your health, but for your home as well.
As we near the end of winter, it’s a good time to take stock of your indoor air quality and consider if there’s more you can do to improve the air your family is breathing before we fall victim to dryness again. We’ve shared some signs below that indicate it may be time for your family to invest in a humidifier.
Your Health Is Suffering
If you’ve ever experienced a sinus infection that just won’t seem to go away, or you’ve noticed members of your family continuously experiencing allergy symptoms when at home, then the climate within your home may very well be to blame. Humid air can help clean out your sinuses to help you breathe easier! Additionally, humid air helps people with cold and flu symptoms recover faster.
You’ve Noticed Damage In Your Home
Whether temperatures are blazing hot or bitterly cold, the effect of dry air is the same. It can cause wood to dry out, crack and splinter. So if you have any wood furniture, flooring, or even instruments in your home, they can all suffer damage.
You Notice Static Electricity
Static electricity in the home is not something that usually bothers people too much. In fact, in many cases people are amused by the effects it has on their hair and their ability to “shock” siblings! But this static electricity can actually be damaging to your electronics, causing them to dry out and malfunction.
