Humidifiers: the Unexpected Comfort Provider

Contemplating adding a humidifier to your St. Louis home when you’re currently trying to escape the humidity outdoors this summer may seem odd. However, now is the time to think about how to be sure your indoor air quality is healthy and comfortable when the air becomes drier this fall and winter.

You may not have known this, but the comfort of your indoor air has a lot to do with humidity levels. For instance, when it’s really humid in St. Louis, you’ll notice more people complaining about how unpleasant it is outside. Air that is too dry can also cause discomfort, like dry skin, a scratchy throat and annoying shocks from static electricity. Dry air can even boost your likelihood of catching a cold or picking up a respiratory illness because it dries out your protective mucous membranes.

Dry air can also be a problem for your home in addition to your body. You may have wood floors or furniture splitting or warping. You could also have issues with peeling wallpaper and gaps in your baseboards and other molding.

Don’t worry, though, because 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 bump up your heat. Balanced humidity levels can make your home feel cozier at a lower temperature. Being able to adjust your thermostat even a few degrees can add up to savings on your utility bill.

While you may have thought you could only control your indoor air quality with ventilation, air filtration or air purification, now you know how big of a role humidity plays in your home comfort.
