Temperature is important for comfort – and so is Humidity
Most people believe that the temperature in their houses determines comfort and air quality. While this is true, humidity also has a significant impact on how safe and energy efficient the entire home is. We believe that maintaining your home’s humidity (between 40% and 60%) can give several benefits, both in your everyday life and in the long run.
To point it into simpler terms, do your hands get very dry in the winter? Dry skin is caused by a lack of moisture. The same concept applies to wood. If the humidity levels in a home are too low, wood can crack, similar to dry hands. Not only can your wood crack, but it may shrink and if you have wood floors it, they will start to form gaps between the boards = splinters or split along the grain.
Whole Home Humidifiers – Benefits for the Home
If the humidity level in your home is too high, the wood will absorb too much moisture and expand, resulting in warping, buckling, crowning, or cupping.
Installing a humidifier is the greatest method to safeguard your house. A humidifier will keep the wood in your house and furniture looking its best.
Snoring can be reduced by increasing the quantity of moisture in the air. When the air is dry, a person’s airways are less likely to be adequately lubricated, which might exacerbate snoring.
Furthermore, many people wake up with extremely dry lips and throats. Increasing humidity in the air can assist to get more moisture into the airways, which can help with the dryness in your throat.
Flu viruses have been found to thrive in dry air settings. According to research, “maintaining indoor relative humidity >40% will significantly reduce the infectivity of aerosolized viruses.” Other viruses, molds, and pollutants prefer either overly dry or moist environments. Therefore, maintaining a healthy air balance is not only good for you, but it also protects you from various airborne illnesses that flourish in the environment, according to this study.
