What is a Humidifier?
A humidifier is a device that increases humidity (moisture) in a single room or in your entire home. Point-of-use humidifiers are commonly used to humidify a single room, while whole-house or furnace humidifiers connect to your home’s HVAC system, providing humidity to the entire house.

Humidity plays a key role in keeping your home comfortable at any temperature. Why is humidity important? During the cooling season, high humidity gives you that hot, sticky feeling everyone hates. Too humid air allows faster growth of bacteria, viruses, dust mites, mold, and mildew. High humidity can also cause painted surfaces to peel and woodwork to warp, buckle, and rot.
On the other hand, during the heating season, moisture evaporating from your skin makes you feel cooler than normal. Low humidity can also cause dry skin and nasal passages, growth of bacteria and viruses, static electricity, damaged woodwork, and more. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers minimize these problems by maintaining proper humidity levels, allowing you to feel more comfortable all year long.
