The obvious reasons set aside, I.E. dry skin, static electricity, or dry nasal passages; your home needs to stay properly hydrated in order to maintain the comfort of those living in it. Air that is too dry can act like a giant sponge, soaking up moisture from everyone and everything in your home, including woodwork, wood floors, and furnishings.

Whole-house humidifiers run while your HVAC system is running, constantly cycling water and air. While portable humidifiers have water tanks that often need to be filled, whole-house humidifiers automatically fills itself. Say good-bye to the dryness in your home, plus humidified air feels warmer!
