Humidity is usually portrayed as some kind of villain in the summer. While it’s true that having high humidity in your home can cause a number of issues, low humidity also creates its own set of problems. Your cooling system can throw your home’s humidity levels out of balance. An air humidifier can help you address this issue. Here’s how using a humidifier in the summer can benefit you:
Reduce Dry Air
Your air conditioner removes moisture from your home’s air, making it stale and dry. Dry air can cause sinus troubles, nosebleeds, sore throat, itchy skin and eyes, and dry hair. It can also damage your books and furniture. A humidifier helps you tackle these problems by adding moisture back into your air.
Moisture in the household air can make you and your family healthier by improving breathing quality as well as alleviating asthma and eczema symptoms.
While dry air may make you feel cooler, it can also make you uncomfortable. An air humidifier helps you balance your need for cool temperatures with your need for comfortable moisture levels in the air.
Increase Home Value
Installing a whole-home dehumidifier may improve the value of your home by helping it qualify for a green home certification program. Green homes sell faster and at higher prices than comparable, conventional homes.
With an air humidifier, you can run your A/C system all summer long and still maintain proper humidity levels.
