Your humidifier can actually help reduce winter energy bills. Humid air feels warmer, so you can turn down the thermostat without turning down the comfort inside your home. A humidifier working at peak efficiency will reduce your utility bills, so it pays to keep it clean. In addition:
- You breathe healthier, cleaner air.
- Your wood furniture and floors maintain their moisture content (and shape).
- You avoid dry mouth, throat, and nostrils during winter nights.
- Your skin will be less likely to crack/split.
