Lack of humidity in the home is a major cause of dry, cracked skin, allergy symptoms, as well as cold and flu symptoms. Low humidity levels can also cause furniture and flooring to become brittle and dry. 

Humidifiers are designed to increase the overall moisture level in your home. Whether you are in need of a portable or whole-home unit, our technicians can help you determine what is the best humidfier for your needs. 

Signs You Need a Humidifier

Here are some common indications that you may benefit from a humidifier:

  • Persistent dry, scratchy throat
  • Your skin and scalp are always dry
  • You suffer from asthma or respiratory issues
  • Your wood floors and furniture are drying out

Types of Humidifiers

You may benefit from a certain kind of humidifier depending on your needs. Common types of humidifiers include:

  • Warm Mist Humidifiers: Produce a warm, soothing mist and is often beneficial for treating cold and flu symptoms. They also tend to be quieter than cool mist humidifiers.
  • Cool Mist Humidifiers: Cool mist humidifiers use a filter to trap minerals and impurities and then dispense a cool invisible mist into the air. They are generally easy to clean and are more effective in larger areas. 
  • Whole-House Humidifiers: Are used to provide moisture to a large area. They contain a large storage tank, therefore can often go days without refilling.
  • Ultrasonic Humidifiers: Ultrasonic humidifiers use a metal “diaphragm” vibrating at an ultrasonic frequency, much like a speaker. This creates water droplets that are then dispensed into the air via a fan. These units are quiet and usually create a cool fog.
