In Valleywide, we experience sweltering summers, cold winters, and mostly clear skies. The relative humidity is low for the majority of the year. Properly moisturized air is essential to comfort, health, supple skin, a good night’s sleep, and the sustainability of home furnishings. Humidity between 40 and 60% is recommended. Whole-house humidifier installation is the most effective means of achieving and maintaining ideal levels.
Some of the consequences of overly dry air include:
Aggravated allergy symptoms
Dry, itchy skin
Increased risk of catching colds, flu, and viruses
Inflamed mucous membranes
Issues with eczema
Viruses can survive longer in low humidity
Worsened asthma symptoms
Studies have shown that properly humidifying the indoor air reduces the risk of infection from airborne virus particles by 86%. A drop in humidity decreases skin elasticity and can lead to the formation of fine wrinkles. It can also dry out and weaken wood floors. When the air is overly dry, wood shrinks and contracts, causing damage to antiques, musical instruments, and more.
