Humidifiers: the Unexpected Comfort Provider08/26/2015 Thinking about adding a humidifier to your Englewood home when you’re doing what you can to escape the humidity outdoors this summer may seem unpleasant. However, truly the best time to determine how to ensure your indoor air quality is healthy and comfortable when the air becomes drier this fall and winter. You may not have known this, but how comfortable your indoor air is has a lot to do with humidity levels. For instance, when it’s really humid in Englewood, you’ll notice more people complaining about how hot and uncomfortable it is outside. Air that is too dry can also cause discomfort, like dry skin, a scratchy throat and annoying shocks from static electricity. Dry air can even raise your chances of catching a cold or picking up a respiratory illness because it dries out your protective mucous membranes. Dry air can also be a problem for your home in addition to your body. You may see wood floors or furniture splitting or warping. You could also experience peeling wallpaper and gaps in your baseboards and other molding. The good news is that it’s easy to take control of the humidity in your home with a humidifier. A humidifier may also help you decrease your energy costs in the winter because drier air feels colder and may cause you to turn up your heat. Proper humidity levels can make your home feel cozier at a lower temperature. Lowering your thermostat even a few degrees can add up to savings on your utility bill. While you may have thought you could only control your indoor air quality with ventilation, air filtration or air purification, now you know how big of a role humidity plays in your home comfort.
