What a Humidifier Is
So we want to start at square one. We know that you probably understand the basics of humidifiers. Most homeowners have even used a humidifier on a small scale. Personal humidifiers are a favorite during cold and flu season because they can alleviate the worst of your cold symptoms. A humidifier can help your home in the same way.
A humidifier for your home is a little different than a personal humidifier because the unit is installed directly into your home’s HVAC system.

What It Can Do for You
So what can a humidifier really do for your home? It can do all of the following:
It Keeps Your Home Warm
The winter season brings along cold air and cold air is dry air. Dry anything in winter is going to make your body feel a lot colder than it actually is. Unregulated humidity levels in winter are what’s going to keep you layering on more and more clothes on the colder days and evenings and running your heater for longer amounts of time. The frustrating part about this is that running your heater can actually make your home drier thereby making you feel colder and even more reliant of your heater. It’s a vicious cycle. The best thing you can do is install a humidifier to counteract this process.
It Keeps Your Wooden Furnishings Intact
Have you ever noticed that your wooden floors, tables, or other home furnishings start to tarnish or crack? This happens more often in winter because your home’s air is so dry. Running a humidifier throughout these colder, drier months can help you keep your wooden furnishings in great shape.
It Keeps Your Energy Bills Low
