Feeling Dry? Get a New Humidifier in Kitchener-Waterloo, Guelph, Cambridge and Stratford
As residents of southern Ontario, we like our indoor temperatures warm and cozy during the winter and cool and breezy during the summer. However, did you know that one downside to furnaces and air conditioners is that they often cause dry indoor air? If you notice discomfort such as dry, itchy skin and sore throats, it may be time to invest in a humidifier for your Kitchener and Waterloo area home. Dry air can also make wood materials in your house more susceptible to damage.
Benefits of having a humidifier include preventing:
- The spread of airborne germs such as the flu virus
- Dry, sore throats (which may affect snoring)
- Dry skin, chapped lips, and dry eyes
- Allergy symptoms
- Static shocks and sparks that can damage electronics
- Wood damage – dry air can cause wood to crack
Higher humidity can also make the air within your home feel warmer.
Do You Need a Dehumidifier?
Insufficient moisture can be uncomfortable, but too much moisture isn’t a good thing either! Excess humidity in your home can make it an ideal breeding ground for mould and mildew. The presence of mould and mildew negatively affects air quality and may be particularly harmful to those with allergies or other underlying health conditions. Some moulds can be dangerous to your health too.
Signs you may need a dehumidifier include:
- The presence of mould or mildew
- Condensation on your windows
- Musty odours
- Dampness caused by spring water run-off
