Realizing the benefits of a humidifier

When I resituated to Springfield, Missouri, I was eager to experience all four seasons, however born and raised in the deep south, I was accustomed to heat and humidity however had never seen snow.

My first winter time was a bit difficult… I was not prepared for temperatures in the low twenties and even the teens. I didn’t have a overheated 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 wonderful at all, however every time I wanted to leave for work or go someplace, I needed to budget a great deal of extra time for clearing the driveway, scraping ice off the windshield and allowing the motorcar to overheated up and defrost. 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 heater because it was running non stop. When I hired a local Springfield HVAC corporation to take a look, she mentioned the unusually high thermostat setting, however she explained how to change the filter, encouraged an annual service program for the heater and proposed the upgrade of a humidifier. I had not realized that inadequate humidity can be as problematic as excessive humidity. She explained that the lack of moisture in the air was making it feel colder, but also, overly dry air causes complications 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, and the upgrade of a whole-condo humidifier was a great decision, significantly improving the comfort of the condo and making the winters a bit more bearable.
