Discomfort

Very dry air is just not comfortable to be surrounded by.

Instead, use a whole-house humidifier in order inject the air in your home with a sufficient amount of humidity. It can help your comfort by preventing very dry, itchy skin, sore throats, aggravated allergy symptoms, and more.

Property Damage

You may know that very humid air can lead to problems throughout the house such as mold growth. What you may not realize, though, is that very dry air can also put your property at risk. When the air is too dry, your floorboards may split, wallpaper can crack, and paint can chip. Dry air also leads to frequent static shocks, which can damage sensitive electronics throughout the house.

Poor Indoor Air Quality

If the air in your home is too dry, your indoor air quality can suffer as well. Think about it: when you walk on a damp trail somewhere, there isn’t really much soil being kicked up, is there? Walking through arid areas, though, it is hard not to send up dust. The same is true in your home; pollutants won’t really have anything to cling to, as there is not enough moisture in the air, and they are more prone to going airborne. A humidifier can help to resolve all of these issues.
