Here's some lesser known facts about the benefits of a whole house humidifier...

1. Dry air dries out you nasal and sinus passages making it harder for the membranes to capture dirt, dust, viruses and bacteria. Increasing your risk of catching something airborne ... yuck.​


2. Your skin is mostly water! So when the air is dry, your skin will dry out and get itchy, flaky, and can even crack. Overly dry air can lead to acne and eczema flare ups.


3. Static electricity, loves drier air. The sparks get bigger and brighter when the air is dry.


4. If you love your wood floors or that antique buffet that you got from grandma, be careful. Dry air can cause wooden surfaces to dry out leading to cracking, warping and peeling. This also applies to the wood framing, drywall, plaster, etc. that makes up your walls.


5. Don't forget, as all of us here in STL know all to well, moist air feels warmer than dry air. Just think about all those humid summer days ... you know when STL's humidity sky-rockets.
