Ways to increase your home’s humidity

Over the chill Winter months, the air tends to dry out significantly.

This cold, dry air can pose a multitude of serious complications, including dry, cracking skin, and the drying out and warping of the wood and other building materials in your home. When the air gets too cold and dry, your sinuses are liable to become dry, which opens the way to sinus and upper respiratory infections. Increasing the humidity in your house is a unbelievable way to mitigate these complications. One great way to raise the humidity in your house is by adding houseplants. Plants in your house can help to keep a constant humidity by distributing moisture through the air in the room where they are placed. Another unbelievable way to raise the humidity in your house is by adding a humidifier. Portable humidifiers can always exist in several forms. The first is a standalone unit, that can be placed in any room, and will task to distribute moisture in the air for that room. These units will require less of an initial investment, which is why they are more charming to some homeowners, but these types of humidifiers only treat 1 room at a time. The other type of humidifier is 1 that can be quickly installed in-line with your existing Heating and A/C system, and will task to humidify the treated air circulating throughout your whole home. The upgrade for my in-line humidifier was quick and non-invasive, so I am much more comfortable knowing that the air in my house is not too dry, which is so great for my skin, my sinuses, and my house.
