Benefits of Humidifiers
Humidifiers are an excellent solution for many winter-related health and home issues, and here are a few benefits to consider if you’re wondering whether it’s the right fit for your home.
- Prevents Spread of Airborne Viruses: Raising indoor humidity levels to around 43 percent is shown to render many airborne viruses ineffective. Moisture helps prevent the movement of germs because when they come into contact with moisture, they drop instead of remaining in the air.
- Reduces Snoring: Do you or your spouse snore? If so, a humidifier may be the cure. Humidifiers add moisture to the air, which helps soothe the tissues in your mouth and throat, which can reduce snoring.
- Prevents Dry Skin: When the air is dry, it pulls moisture out of the skin, which leads to redness, itching, and chapped lips. Running a humidifier prevents your skin from drying out.
- Makes You Feel Warmer: Humidity in the air may make people feel warmer without raising the heat. The result is that you can save money on your heating bills by not running the furnace as much.

Do You Need an AC Humidifier?
There are a variety of humidifiers you can purchase, but one to consider is the humidifier you install with your air conditioner. Running an air conditioner pulls moisture out of the air, which leads to many of the problems listed above. Adding a room humidifier is a way to fix the problem, but if you want a whole-home solution, consider installing a humidifier directly to your HVAC system. An AC humidifier gives you protection throughout the house and means you don’t have to lug a heavy standalone unit from room to room. At Conway Comfort Heating & Cooling, we’ve helped many East Windsor residents improve the air quality and comfort level in their homes by adding an air conditioner humidifier to their current setup.

How to Maintain a Humidifier?
Whether you have a room unit or an air conditioner humidifier, you must maintain it to ensure it functions to its full capacity. Regular cleaning is key to keeping the unit in top shape. Also, experts recommend that you not allow the humidity to go above 50 percent because too much moisture in the air can cause mold and bacteria to grow. Using distilled water in the humidifier is also recommended to reduce the spread of minerals in the air.
