With it, your indoor air can retain comfortable moisture levels without sacrificing the heat we need in the winter, and reduce the occurrences of colds and viruses in your family to boot.

Why Is Dry Air Such a Problem?
As human beings, we need our air to have relative humidity levels between 30% and 50%. When it drops below that, the moisture gets leeched away from our skin, leading to that itchy dry feeling. Static electricity goes up, leading to painful shocks, and at extreme levels, it can even affect your furnishings. Moe importantly, by drying out your sinuses, it leaves you more vulnerable to colds, which is why we see more illnesses during our winters. The reasons behind the lowered humidity levels can be found in high school science class. When the temperature goes down, the water vapor in the air solidifies, leaving very dry air behind. Nothing can be done for it, especially in a town as cold as ours.
Whole–House Humidifiers Are the Solution
You can, however, replenish that lost moisture with a whole–house humidifier. The system is fairly simple: a fan placed in the apex of your heating ducts, which blows air over a wick that soaks up water from a reservoir. The increased humidity is then passed through the ducts into your home, improving your comfort and health levels in a snap. Best of all, whole–house humidifiers don’t need a great deal of time to install (though professional technicians are required) and can work in conjunction with your existing HVAC system easily.
