“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.”

Another benefit with regards to having a whole-house humidifier is energy efficiency. Specifically, how it relates to the temperature in your home. With adequate humidity levels, you can lower your thermostat and still feel warm which will save you some money each month.
