Why Humidify?

Studies have estimated that most people spend as much as 90% of their time at home indoors. There’s a reason to be concerned about indoor air quality.

When cold, dry air enters your home and our home and is warmed to room temperature, the relative humidity in the average house can drop to as little as 5%. Compare that to the average 25% relative humidity of the Sahara Desert and you can understand why the air inside your home can seriously affect your health and comfort.

How Does Humidity Affect My Comfort?

Since the air in your home is always trying to reach its saturation point, it will absorb water wherever it’s found. That means it is stealing moisture from the bodies of you and your children, your pets, your furniture and even your house plants. By giving up moisture to the air, your skin, throat and nasal passages dry out and crack, leading to various physical discomforts. That's why many doctors recommend humidifiers for allergy and asthma sufferers.

How Does Humidity Affect My House?

Virtually everything in your home made from wood contains some moisture. As dry air sucks that moisture out, the wood shrinks and cracks. Harwood floors separate at the seams, furniture shrinks and cracks, and doors warp and no longer fit their frames as the moisture is drawn off.
