Humidifiers: the Unexpected Comfort Provider

Contemplating adding a humidifier to your Las Vegas home when you’re currently trying to escape the humidity outdoors this summer may seem like the last thing you want to do. However, truly the best time to consider how to make sure your indoor air quality is healthy and comfortable when the air gets drier this fall and winter.

You may not realize it, but the comfort of your indoor air has a lot to do with the level of humidity in your home. For instance, when it’s extremely humid in Las Vegas, you’ll notice more people complaining about how unpleasant it is outside. Air that is too dry can also cause discomfort, like dry skin, a scratchy throat and maddening shocks from static electricity. Dry air can even raise your likelihood of catching a cold or picking up a respiratory illness because it dries out your protective mucous membranes.

Dry air can also cause problems your home in addition to your body. You may see wood floors or furniture splitting or warping. You could also experience peeling wallpaper and gaps in your baseboards and other molding.

It’s not all bad news, though, because it’s easy to take control of the humidity in your home with a humidifier. A humidifier could help you lower your energy costs in the winter because drier air feels colder and may cause you to turn up your heat. Balanced humidity levels can make your home feel warmer at a lower temperature. Lowering your thermostat even a few degrees can add up to savings on your utility bill.

While you may have thought you could only control your indoor air quality with ventilation, air filtration or air purification, now you know how big of a role humidity plays in your home comfort.
