3 Reasons You Shouldn’t Spend Another Winter Without a Humidifier

Cozy home covered in winter snow

We live in a climate where it can get so cold that it hurts. A good heating system will keep you warm inside, but without proper humidity, indoor air can still be damaging to your skin—and more. Protect yourself from winter’s worst with a whole-home humidifier from Gross Heating & Air Conditioning. Our systems are designed to work with any type of home to deliver humidified air with three major benefits:

1. Be Healthier With Humidity

The quality of the air inside your home has a direct effect on your quality of life. When you install a humidifier, you’ll get almost immediate relief from itchy skin, chapped lips, and dry eyes. You may also notice a decrease in allergy and asthma symptoms, as well as fewer colds, flus, and respiratory infections. If that’s not enough, better sleep is another benefit of adding moisture to the air. Instead of snoring all night and waking up with a sore throat or nosebleed, you’ll likely sleep more soundly and have a healthier start to your day.

2. Be More Efficient When It Comes to Heating Costs

You can’t put a price on comfort, but there are many statistics that show a humidifier is good for you and your budget. Just as humid days feel hotter in summer, adding humidity to your dry winter air makes it feel warmer. With humidity in the 35 to 50 percent range, you can turn down your thermostat a little—and save big on energy—and still feel just right. In fact, lowering your thermostat by just one degree can reduce your heating bill by up to four percent.

3. Be Smarter About Your Home

Your body isn’t the only thing that needs proper humidity levels—your home needs help in winter, too. Wood shrinks, cracks, and splits as it dries, and over time, this means floors, doors, trim, and furniture may need expensive repairs or replacement. Dry conditions also create excessive static electricity that’s damaging to electronics and shocking to you.
