You may have a dry home.
Even though we get that nice snow and ice, Winter months are actually the driest. Colds are also highest during the Winter months and having humidity can help. Humidity helps your body absorb the heat making your house feel warmer at a lower temperature, therefore increasing efficiency and comfort. A comfortable humidity level in your home should ideally be between 30-50%
There are multiple options when it comes to humidifying your home. From a basic flow through humidifier controlled from a simple humidistat located near your furnace. To a high powered steam injecting humidifier controlled from your smartphone. Because needs and system performance vary drastically from home to home you should seek your local HVAC technician to discuss your options that best fit your needs.
Annual maintenance of your humidifier is highly recommended. A clogged drain or pad can cause costly water leaks, inefficient heating and premature humidifier failure.
