“Humans tend to function well when the humidity is between 35-40% saturation. In the winter time, the humidity in the air is very low and warm dry air created by our home’s furnace or air handlers drops the humidity inside our homes even further! Less humidity can bring about nose bleeds, dry skin, respiration problems, and exacerbate already lingering allergy issues. Along with the issues low humidity brings to humans, our pets suffer as well. Concentrations of pet dander in the home skyrocket in homes with humidity issues! To help answer the issue of low humidity, HVAC manufacturers came up with what is known as a whole home humidifier system. Humidifiers are attached to your furnace or air handler’s ductwork and supply water to the air passed through the home’s ductwork.”
