Humidifiers help to improve air quality and alleviate symptoms of dry air, such as sinus headaches, dry skin, sneezing and coughing. For allergy and asthma sufferers, having humidifiers greatly helps minimize their symptoms by moisturizing the air during the dry winter months.
Humidifiers come in a variety of sizes (or gallon output), and humidification types such as (warm-mist, cool-mist evaporative, ultrasonic, impeller, vaporizer). Whole-house humidifiers, or console humidifiers, are larger portable units capable of humidifying multiple rooms and very large areas. Room humidifiers are smaller units better suited for small to medium sized rooms for home and office.
For asthma and allergy sufferers, it is important to ensure the system is serviced at least twice each year to ensure clean moist air continues to flow into their environment.
