When humidity gets too low, things can start getting uncomfortable. The lining of the throat and nose can dry out causing respiratory issues. We feel much colder than we should based on the temperature reading. Even wooden furniture shrinks and cracks over time. Books and artworks get warped and brittle which is why conservationists are adamant about installing humidifiers in libraries and galleries. Homeowners should get one as well if they live in a hot dry desert or a very cold place that requires indoor heating.
Types of Humidifiers
Residential models that can be used for individual homes come in two styles, steam and bypass.
Using Humidifiers Safely
Keep the relative humidity around 30-50% for optimum comfort and microorganism prevention.
