If you’re asking yourself if you need a humidifier, it probably means you’re experiencing annoyances or worse, and getting a humidifier is definitely worth considering. This region can certainly experience dry conditions, potentially causing a cascade of other issues. If your interior air does not contain enough moisture, installing a humidifier could remedy the situation.
Signs of Low Humidity
You can get a hygrometer to see exactly how much moisture is present in the air in your home. If the reading is frequently below 20 percent, it would be a good idea to do something to increase the humidity. Without buying this instrument and taking a measurement, there are other ways low humidity can be determined. Be aware of:
- Dry skin
- Chapped lips
- Irritated eyes
- Shocks from static electricity
- Allergies and lingering coughs
- Gaps or cracks in the wood in your home
The cold air in the winter months is known for being particularly harsh in terms of dryness. It will probably be during this season that you notice most of these problems.
What to Do
A portable humidifier that is designed to handle a single room may help you breathe easier or sleep more soundly, but a whole-house humidifier is a more efficient and comprehensive solution.
