Denver is Dry. Your Home Should Have a Full House Humidifier

Did you know that Denver is among the nation’s driest cities?
The greater Denver metro area experiences dry air all year long, especially during winter months. Dry air has negative effects on our bodies. Dry skin, nosebleeds, aggravated asthma, and increased vulnerability to illness. The most effective way to combat dry air in your home is to install a whole house humidifier.

A whole house humidifier is installed directly into your cooling and heating system. It introduces humidity in the form of water vapor into the air that cycles throughout your home. The level of humidity is then monitored and controlled by your thermostat, just like the temperature is, and an even level of moisture can be released into your house all year long.

Having a whole house humidifiers can benefit you in many ways

1. Whole Home Humidifiers Help With Your Health

Many viruses thrive in low humidity environments, which can increase your likelihood of catching the flu virus and other respiratory infections. Putting humidity back into your home can reduce the risk against many illnesses. This is especially true if you were recently exposed to the flu or a virus. 

2. Whole Home Humidifiers Help Reduce Snoring

Many people do not realize that dry air can contribute to or even increase the severity of your snoring. This is due to insufficient moisture in the air. This causes the throat to swell and the nose to become congested. 

3. Whole Home Humidifiers Protect Your Throat

When indoor air has too little moisture, it is possible for your vocal cords to become dry and scratchy. Maintaining the optimal level of humidity in your home can help lubricate and soothe your throat. This will help minimize the dryness that can lead to inflammation in your windpipe and voice box.

4. Whole Home Humidifiers Helps Moisturize

Dry air can cause unpleasant symptoms to your skin. When running your furnace, it causes the humidity levels to drop down. Your skin starts to lose its moisture. Lips and hands are also composed of tender skin; therefore, they tend to chap more easily and frequently when the air becomes drier. While lotion or chap-stick can help you regain moisture, using a humidifier to add moisture to the air in your home will naturally help rehydrate your skin, and lips.

5. Whole Home Humidifiers Helps Protect Furniture / Floors

Wood floors and furniture react negatively to fluctuations in humidity. When wooden items become too dry, it is possible for them to crack or split.  Adding humidity in your home will help protect the suppleness and integrity of your wood floors or furniture.

6. Whole Home Humidifiers Helps Houseplants Flourish

Many house plants come from the jungle or environments that are humid. This means they thrive in environment that have an abundance of moisture in the air. Plans can experience leaf loss, or dry leaf tips and stunted growth when the air is too dry. By having a full house humidifier gives your indoor plants a better chance of thriving. 

7. Whole Home Humidifiers Helps Keep Your Home Warm
