Do Homes in Washington Need Humidifiers During the Winter?

In Washington, there’s no denying that the air in the winter is fairly dry due to a low level of humidity. Unfortunately, dry air can lead to a lot of negatives for homes in Yakima and the Tri-Cities. Many residents are relying on a humidifier to combat the effects of dry air. Whole-home humidifiers are a top option among Washington homeowners as they help to balance out the entirety of your home as opposed to a single room.

Disadvantages of Dry Air

Low humidity levels can result in dry, stuffy air. While low humidity levels may not seem a pressing issue initially, spending a lot of time in dry air can take its toll. Some of the disadvantages of low humidity levels include:

  • Dry skin
  • Chapped lips
  • Eye irritation
  • Nosebleeds
  • Illnesses such as bronchitis sinusitis
  • Cold symptoms
  • Breathing difficulty
  • Congestion
  • Dehydration
  • Structural damage to your belongings

Benefits of Whole-Home Humidifiers

Humidifiers work by producing water vapor that increases humidity levels, and they come in a few different variations. Whole-home humidifiers are great for dryer climates and are especially useful during the winter; these systems work hand in hand with your HVAC system. Benefits of implementing a whole-home humidifier into your home include:

  • Balanced moisture levels
  • Improved health
  • Better sleep
  • Increased home comfort
  • Improved indoor air quality
  • Heightened structural integrity
  • Energy savings
