“Dry sinuses, bloody noses and cracked lips — humidifiers can help soothe these familiar problems caused by dry indoor air. Humidifiers can also help ease symptoms of a cold or another respiratory condition” (MayoClinic.com).

The use of a humidifier can also reduce static electricity, peeling wallpaper, and cracks in paint, furniture and woodwork.

A relative humidity level of between 30% and 50% provides the optimum condition for human occupancy. Indoor humidity levels can drop below 10% in the winter due to the fact that cooler air holds less moisture than warmer air. Heating systems can also reduce the relative humidity in the home.

Two of the most effective means of reintroducing moisture into the air are the use of portable evaporative humidifiers and duct mounted humidifiers. The evaporative filter is the key component in these humidifiers.
