Indoor comfort has a lot to do with the temperature setting on the thermostat. However, there are other factors at play when it comes to your health and comfort as well, and one of the biggest influences on how you feel within your home is humidity. High and low humidity levels can both lead to discomfort, and a healthy balance can improve the quality of living within your home.

How Whole-House Humidifiers Improve Air Quality
A whole–house humidifier is typically used when it is cold and the winter air dries out your skin and your sinuses. Humidifiers emit enough moisture to keep humidity levels balanced. (An acceptable relative humidity is about 30%–50%.) The best humidifiers are installed within the HVAC system, sized and installed to help improve your air quality in the following ways:
- Prevent dry sinuses. Dried-out mucus membranes make it more difficult for your body to fight off illness. A whole–house humidifier can actually protect you during cold and flu season.
- Promote healthier skin and lips. Give your skin a healthy glow and prevent your lips from chapping by adding some moisture back into the air.
- Protect your furniture. Sometimes, a lack of humidity can dry out wood furniture, flooring, or even valuable antiques and expensive musical instruments.
When to Use Your Dehumidifier
Dehumidifiers, of course, have the opposite effect of humidifiers. A dehumidifier removes moisture from the air, which is typically of benefit during the summer. The summer heat feels a whole lot worse when humidity levels are high because sweat cannot evaporate from your body with ease when there is too much moisture in the air.
Your air conditioner does help to remove humidity from the air. But, since that is not the air conditioner’s primary purpose, it takes a lot of energy for an AC system to remove humidity levels to the point of comfort. The best dehumidifiers don’t consume a lot of energy (assuming they are installed and maintained by professional HVAC technicians). Sometimes, homeowners realize they don’t even need to run their AC systems if the dehumidifier is on.
