Humidifiers: the Unexpected Comfort Provider

Contemplating adding a humidifier to your Englewood home when you’re spending a lot of time trying to escape the humidity outdoors this summer may seem unpleasant. However, it’s actually the perfect time to determine how to be sure your indoor air quality is healthy and comfortable when the air starts to get drier this fall and winter.

You may not realize it, but how comfortable you feel inside has a lot to do with the level of humidity in your home. 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 issues, like dry skin, a scratchy throat and annoying shocks from static electricity. Dry air can even increase your likelihood of catching a cold or picking up a respiratory illness because it dries out your protective mucous membranes.

Dry air can also cause problems your home in addition to your body. You may have 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 control the humidity levels in your home with a humidifier. A humidifier could help you lower 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.
