A humidifier is used to add moisture to homes and businesses that may otherwise lack it. During the winter months the combination of low or freezing temperatures and heating systems leads to dry and very stale air. Dry air can irritate skin, lips, colds, flues, sinus issues, coughs and even the structure of your home.
If your home needs a humidifier it can be an overwhelming decision determining what humidifier is right for your home and for your family. The first decision to make is whether you want to purchase a warm mist humidifier or cool mist humidifier.
