Winter’s Here: Do You Have a Humidifier?

Not that you need to be reminded, but winter is here and it’s cold! While that’s hardly news, many people aren’t aware that this is the season when it’s more important than ever to maintain a healthy environment in your home.

One important aspect of staying healthy in Canada’s harsh winter climate is making sure the indoor air you’re breathing is humidified and hygienic. That may sound like quite the challenge, but it in fact, thanks to technology, it’s simply a matter of finding a good humidifier.

The Problem: Dry Air

Your heating system keeps you warm, but unfortunately it’s also responsible for drying out the air you breath. Since cold weather air is already low in moisture, the result is an even drier, unhealthy environment.

Over-dried air can lead to dry skin, sinus problems, dry nasal passages, chapped lips, and other health issues. Over-dried air can also cause flare-ups of psoriasis, if you suffer from that skin condition.

A home that’s protected with a modern, high-quality humidifier is a healthier home and a more comfortable home as well. But what, exactly, do humidifiers do for you, and how do they do it?

Humidifiers 101

Humidifiers work to combat dry winter air in your home by emitting moisture. Not all are created alike, however. The benefits of ultrasonic humidifiers range from how unbelievably silent they are to their wonderfully low-maintenance operation.

Plus, since they don’t have to rely on heat to create the water vapor (they use ultrasonic vibrations hence the term “ultrasonic humidifier”), they use far less electricity than conventional humidifiers.

Ultrasonic humidifiers are usually much smaller than conventional types, since there’e no need for a heating coil. There’s no wait time, either, since you’re not waiting for a coil to warm up before it boils water.
