It’s no secret that dry air can cause discomfort. From dry skin, dry and itchy eyes to irritated nasal passages. More aggravated symptoms can include a bloody nose, an itchy throat. Dry air could also increase static electricity, which you can feel in your clothes, hair and some furniture. Bottom line, no one likes dry air!
A hygrometer can measure the percentage of humidity in the air. As a rule of thumb, humidity between 30% and 50% is considered a comfortable level. However, humidity that’s below 30% is uncomfortably dry and humidity that’s more than 50% increases the potential for bacterial growth. If the humidity level in your home is lower than 30%, consider having a humidifier installed.
Humidifiers can make your home more comfortable. They relieve symptoms related to cold and some respiratory conditions like asthma or allergies – make sure to consult a doctor about the use of humidifiers for medical reasons.
