Top 3 Benefits of a Humidifier
If your humidity level is too high, like during the summer, your home is at risk for problems like mildew and mold and microbes. When humidity is too low, like during the summer, you become susceptible to static electricity, wood damage in the home and health issues like dry skin, and bloody noses, etc.
MILDEW GROWTH AND MOLD
Some people notice that their skin, lips, and hair become dry and fragile in the winter. Many types of heating units pump hot, dry air through the house or office, which can make the skin dry, itchy, or flaky. Cold air outside can also dry out the skin. Using a humidifier to add moisture to the indoor air may help to reduce the occurrence of dry, cracked skin
The authors of one study noted that humidifiers might reduce the risk of catching the flu. After adding the influenza virus to the air with a simulated cough, researchers found humidity levels above 40 percent rapidly deactivated virus particles, making them much less likely to be infectious.
Increasing the amount of moisture in the air can also reduce snoring. If the air is dry, a person’s airways are less likely to be sufficiently lubricated, making snoring worse. Adding humidity to the air by running a humidifier at night may help to relieve some symptoms.

Signs of Poor Indoor Air Quality
If you are trying to determine if you have an air quality problem in your home, keep in mind that you can usually get an idea of the quality of air in a dwelling by looking closely at the health of everyone who resides within, those who have to breathe the air day in and day out.
Here's a quick guide to help homeowners determine if they have poor Indoor Air Quality:
MILDEW GROWTH AND MOLD
When a dwelling has higher than normal levels of humidity over any period of time, watch out, as these conditions are ideal for the growth and development of mold and mildew, and the likes. If the home has high humidity and lacks proper air circulation and filtration, it worsens if these things pop up. Mold and mildew can lead to serious health problems.
UNEVEN TEMPERATURE LEVELS
If your residence has uneven temperature levels or areas that are often too warm or too cold, this is another sign of an indoor air quality problem. Anytime an HVAC system fails to properly maintain humidity or temperature levels evenly throughout a dwelling, the home’s indoor air quality is compromised as a result as well and it should be taken care of before it blossoms into other problems that can be more expensive.
STRANGE ODORS OR UNUSUAL SMELLS
Sometimes, these types of odors emanate from mildew or mold growth, in which case they need to be addressed immediately. Other smells could indicate some kind of pest or rodent infestation, which should be taken care of as soon as possible as well. Other odors are clear indications of chemicals in the air, or decomposing materials, dirt, dust, or some kind of debris on your surfaces somewhere inside.
Generally speaking, allergy symptoms are the body’s response to dust, dirt, pollen, and other pollutants in a home’s air supply. Usually, tese types of particles tend to be more concentrated in enclosed areas like residential settings, as opposed to outdoor settings where the air is fresh and cleaned by nature. Because residential dwellings are so tightly insulated to keep the warm and cool air from escaping, allergy symptoms often become worse inside. If you are struggling with allergy symptoms, you should call us to talk about ways to improve your Indoor Air Quality.
