Why Use a Humidifier?
The basic job of a humidifier, either a small humidifier model or a whole room evaporative Humidifier, is to dispense moist air into the environment of the home. During the winter, the modern home is closed up to accommodate efficient heating. This can really dry out the air, making it uncomfortable. Dry air can contribute to sinus problems, croup and other breathing difficulties, in those who are already susceptible. Your mucus membranes work best when they are kept moist and winter air can quickly upset that balance. A room humidifier can bring balance back to the environment of your home and minimize health problems that can be so rampant during the colder months.
What Features Should You Look For?
A humidifier is a fairly simple tool. However, there are several features that you should be looking for, both for best performance and for ease of care. These aren’t necessarily essential when making your selection, but they make the machine easier to operate, clean and own, so should be taken into consideration when selecting the right humidifier for your home.
