During winter months, when homes are heated, indoor air dries out moisture from our nose and throat mucous membranes, which can cause damage to our tissues. Because it affects our airways, dryness increases risks of respiratory diseases. It can also cause dehydration and moisture evaporation, which may irritate the skin and the eyes. The same goes for pets.

People spend on average 70% of their time at home, hence the importance of proper humidification to better indoor air quality. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends a relative humidity of 30-50% RH to optimize health in the home and prevent moisture-related issues such as mold. Also, as mentioned in ASHRAE standard 16, the risk of bacteria and pathogens are eliminated between 30 and 60% RH, while viruses are greatly reduced in the same range.

Proper humidification can also avoid damage to the home’s infrastructure like flooring and support beams, which could crack or warp when exposed to high humidity levels. It can also prevent damage to appliances.
