Realizing the benefits of a humidifier

When I relocated to Springfield, Missouri, I was eager to experience all four seasons! Born and raised in the deep south, I was accustomed to heat and humidity however had never seen snow, but my first winter time was a bit difficult, then i was not prepared for temperatures in the low twenties and even the teens.

  • I didn’t have a moderate enough coat, hat, boots or gloves.

I didn’t own a snow shovel, snow brush or ice scraper. I learned that shoveling snow is time-consuming, labor-intensive and not fantastic at all… Every time I wanted to leave for labor or go anywhere, I needed to budget a great deal of extra time for clearing the driveway, scraping ice off the windshield and allowing the car to moderate up and defrost, and walking across icy pavement can be treacherous and pushing a grocery cart through the snow is nearly impossible. I spent the entirety of that first winter time hiding inside with the thermostat cranked up. It cost me a small luck in heating bills. I thought something was wrong with the furnace because it was running non stop. When I hired a local Springfield Heating & Air Conditioning dealer to take a look, he mentioned the unusually high thermostat setting… He explained how to change the filter, encouraged an annual maintenance program for the furnace and commanded the replacement of a humidifier. I had not realized that unacceptable humidity can be as problematic as excessive humidity. He explained that the lack of moisture in the air was making it feel colder; Also, overly dry air causes troubles with headaches, congestion, coughing, sneezing, itchy eyes, sore throat, allergy symptoms and dry skin. Everything from my frizzy hair and chapped lips was due to the lack of humidity. I was getting static shocks whenever I walked across the carpet and even suffered a bloody nose. The replacement of a whole-home humidifier was a great decision, significantly improving the comfort of the home and making the winters a bit more bearable.
