We all hear about it. Everyone says having a home humidifier is important and beneficial for the health of you and your family. But people don’t discuss the incredible benefits of why it is wise to invest in a whole home humidifier and how to find the right one for your household.

M.E. Flow’s team of service technicians and home comfort advisors are experts on indoor air quality for Leesburg, Winchester, Alexandria, and Northern Virginia, are here to explain what you need to know about humidifiers.

Relieves dry air
During the winter months, when the heater is running more frequent it makes the air very dry. Problems you may encounter are:

  • Dry and itchy skin
  • Sinus pain
  • Static hair and shocks
  • Chapped lips
  • Dry nasal passages

The best solution to your dry air problem is a whole home humidifier. We recommend installing the Aprilaire, which will keep the air in your home at an ideal 30-50 percent humidity to add much-needed moisture to keep your skin beautiful and alleviate any sinus pressure from the dry air.

Treats Allergy Symptoms
If you are known to have allergies during the winter with irritation in your nasal passages, mouth, sinuses, and throat, having a humidifier will help soothe this irritation by adding moisture and cleaning the air you breathe in.

Treats Cold and Flu Symptoms
Do you always get sick during the winter? A humidifier can help prevent or eliminate viruses and bacteria that grow in dry air. It is important to choose a humidifier that controls the amount of humidity in the air because overuse could cause allergens and harmful pathogens to grow in the air you breathe. That is why we recommend the Aprilaire whole-home humidifier, its advanced technology allows you to have more control over humidity levels.
