Humidifiers control moisture to increase the indoor air quality of your home or business.
Humidity refers to the amount of water vapor that is in the atmosphere. A humidifier is a device that increases the humidity level in your home. Humidifiers usually become more necessary in the winter months because humidity levels drop and heating systems dry out the air.
Ideal Humidity Levels
The ideal level of indoor humidity is between 30 and 50 percent. When the air in your home is dry, it will act like a sponge that soaks up the moisture in the atmosphere. When this happens your skin and lips become dry. Even your wood floors and other furnishings in your home are adversely affected. Humidifiers control moisture to increase the indoor air quality of your home or business. Whole-house humidifiers are available, which connect to a home’s HVAC system to provide humidity to the entire house.
