Are you experiencing dry, itchy skin, irritated sinuses, or noticing the paint chipping off your walls? It may not be due to the cold weather or slacking on house maintenance. It might be the lack of humidification in your house, especially if you are living in dry climates. There are a few solutions you can try if you think you may be in this situation.
First, there’s definitely the standard portable units which may be a start to relieving the dryness you experience in your home. Many units are affordable and will provide temporary relief of the situation. But this is not the only solution, nor is it the most effective, as your portable unit will only provide relief in the room in which it is placed.
Whole house units are an excellent choice, as they are connected to your entire central heating (and cooling) systems that run through the whole house. Not only are these likely to be more cost effective than buying a new humidifier every time your portable one gives out, but you also humidify the entire house. Plus, it saves you the cost of needing additional portable units for each individual room in the house.
If you think that humidity is affecting your family or yourself, consider whole house humidification. It can make a big difference in your comfort level at home. The static electricity you may be experiencing, however much you think it’s not a major problem, will also disappear after utilizing some of these tips. Soon, you could be experiencing new comforts in your home that you didn’t even realize were missing before!
