The Benefits of a Humidifier

The winter air is dry in Saskatchewan and can do quite a number on your respiratory system and skin, cause static shocks, and the floorboards in your home to creak. During the winter, we notice things like cracked skin, stuffy noses, sinus problems, and colds. These issues are because of the dry air outside but also the dry air inside your home.

As the temperature drops, so does the level of moisture in the air. Low humidity is a common complaint from the late fall to early spring, especially in homes with central heating, which makes the air even drier.

Humidifiers can help to alleviate the ailments caused by low humidity. Here are the benefits of having a furnace humidifier:

Your Sinuses Won’t Act Up

When the air is too dry, it irritates the membranes in your nose and can leave you prone to sinus congestion and inflammation.  Moist, humid air helps to relieve sinus pain by keeping the air in your home humid.  Running your humidifier in your home will help keep congestion under control and reduce the opportunity of getting an infection.

You Won’t Get Static Shocks

Dry air acts as an insulator, making it easy for a static charge to sneak up and zap you. If you feel like you’re getting shocked from everything you touch, it’s because the air is too dry in your home.

Your Floorboards Won’t Creak

Wood naturally reacts to changes in humidity. It’s normal for hardwood flooring to lose moisture and shrink slightly when the humidity drops. Creaky floorboards is one of the early warning signs your home could use a humidifier. Maintaining consistent humidity level will help keep the floorboards beautiful (and silent) for years to come.

You Won’t Have Really Dry Skin

Chapped lips, cracked knuckles, and itchy, flaking skin is a prevalent winter problem. The drier the air, the faster water in the skin evaporates, leaving you feeling sore and dry.

Health Canada recommends that you keep your home’s humidity between 30% to 50%.  This ideal level of moisture will help your home feel warmer in winter, without you having to turn up the furnace temperature.
