“Putting a whole house humidifier into your home can reward you in many ways:
Many viruses thrive in low-humidity environments, which can increase your likelihood of catching the flu, colds, and other respiratory ailments. And an overly dry environment can make people more susceptible to infection.
Over-dry air can aggravate asthma and allergy symptoms and lead to dry noses, sore throats, and cracked, itchy skin. Not to mention those painful and surprising shocks you get from static electricity.
Dry air can damage many things in a home, including wood floors, plaster, paint, furniture, artwork, electronics and musical instruments. A whole house humidifier therefore protects your home and its contents from the adverse effects of dry air over the long term”

A whole-house humidifier is a more economical choice than purchasing multiple small humidifiers for rooms in your home. For one, you’ll be assured that the humidity level is the same across your entire house instead of trying to juggle multiple units. Secondly, whole-house humidifiers are designed for such use and therefore are more energy-efficient saving you money and better for the environment.
