The one thing we can do about alleviating some of the discomfort of colds, dry noses and dehydrated skin is to install a furnace humidifier in our home, where we spend most of our time in winter.
Dry air promotes the growth of some bacteria, viruses and respiratory irritants that in sensitive individuals cause conditions worse than dry skin. Virtually everything in your home made from wood contains some moisture. As dry air sucks that moisture out, the wood shrinks and cracks. Hardwood floors separate at the seams, furniture shrinks and cracks, and doors warp and no longer fit their frames as the moisture is drawn off. Proper relative humidity helps you save energy costs too because increased humidity gives a home a warmer feeling, so your thermostat can be set at a lower temperature, saving you money.
All furnace-mounted home humidifiers work by introducing moisture from water and evaporating it into a warm air stream coming from the furnace.
