Why Do I Need a Humidifier?

As an Atlanta resident, you may be wondering why on earth you would ever NEED a humidifier. After all, aren’t our summers humid enough? Well, today’s well-insulated homes and offices, energy-efficient heating systems, and tightly sealed windows and doors can all produce uncomfortably dry air, even in our normally humid climate.

So, Why Should I Get a Humidifier?

According to the Mayo Clinic, the ideal humidity in your home should be between 30 and 50 percent. Humidity that's out of that range can cause:

  • Static electricity
  • Furniture damage
  • Dry nose, throat, lips, and skin
  • Increased allergy and asthma symptoms
  • Flu virus particles circulate (and stay alive longer) in dry air

What Kind of Humidifier Should I Get?

There are a variety of humidifier types. Small, single-room humidifiers require frequent refilling and cleaning, which can be a daily hassle. A whole-home steam humidifier, available from Coolray, delivers the perfect amount of moisture to your air. And because humidified air feels warmer, you’ll also be able to turn down your thermostat for energy savings during the cooler months. Check out the other features and benefits of a humidifier from Coolray:

  • Installed within your ductwork for automatic, accurate operation
  • Can be integrated with other products including thermostats, furnaces, air purifiers, etc.
  • Intelligent humidity control will enhance the health, comfort, and quality of your life
  • Whole-house humidity control works with homes of all sizes
  • Energy savings during colder months
  • Easy to maintain
