Winter is just around the corner, and with the cold weather comes new irritations like dry skin, cracked lips, sinus congestion, and even a bloody nose. Fight dryness this winter with a humidifier. Reintroduce moisture to the air inside your home to stay comfortable and healthy all season long.

What is a humidifier?

There are many different types of humidifiers, but they all accomplish the same task; by introducing water vapour into a space in your home (or even the entire structure), humidifiers allow you to control the humidity levels in your home. The extra moisture is extremely helpful for conditions that the winter season tends to aggravate such as those listed above. Humidifiers may even put a stop to your snoring!

What are the risks?

Humidifiers are not inherently harmful, but without regular cleaning can promote the growth of bacteria and mold in your home. There are various methods for cleaning, but the main thing to remember is to do so regularly. Some humidifiers work by emitting a warm water vapour, which can be dangerous for small children who do not understand the burn risk, and humidifiers can aggravate asthma symptoms. Lastly, it is important to monitor the humidity levels in your home when using a humidifier. Too much moisture in your home can cause mold and other issues.
