HOW DOES A HUMIDIFIER HELP?
Humidity refers to the amount of atmospheric water vapor, and humidifiers are devices that increase it. Indoor humidity levels should ideally remain between 30 and 50%, according to the Mayo Clinic. Levels can be monitored with a device called a hygrometer, and many humidifiers have them built in. Humidifiers are generally more necessary during the winter, when atmospheric humidity levels are low. Additionally, heating systems help keep our families well and warm, but as they’re in use, they unfortunately dry the air out.
