Try a Humidifier for a Little More Cold Weather ComfortIf you’ve been thinking about purchasing a home humidifier to improve your family’s comfort, there’s no better time to buy than right now. A little moisture can make winter dryness and all its associated risks things of the past. Here are seven reasons to consider humidifying your Indianapolis area home this winter and early spring: 

  1. Humidifiers can make you healthier. The hair in your nostrils help filter out viruses and bacteria that can make you sick, but they need moisture in order to do their job properly. Moisture in the air helps the body protect itself from a variety of illnesses.
  2. Humidifiers keep your skin moist and dewy. If you suffer from dry skin and chapped lips every winter, you may want to put down the lip balm and pick up a new humidifier to provide your skin with the TLC it needs.
  3. Humidifiers can save you money. The more moisture you have in the air, the warmer you’ll feel. Adding humidity to the air means you can turn the thermostat down on your furnace without sacrificing comfort.
  4. Humidifiers reduce instances of static shock in the home. Static can be annoying enough on its own, as anyone who’s ever walked across a carpet in socks knows. Add some electronics and you’ve got a very uncomfortable way to damage your possessions.
  5. Humidifiers help your plants thrive. Brown leaves are often a sign of a lack of humidity in the air, especially in tropical plants. A new humidifier can keep your plants looking their very best.
  6. Humidifiers can help you to sleep better. If you or your sleeping partner snore, you may be able to find relief with a new home humidifier. Increasing the moisture in your home may be all it takes to sleep better right away.
  7. Since we’re at the end of the heating season, with spring nearly here, you may be able to find deals on humidifiers, since the focus will be shifting over to dehumidification.
