Humidifiers in Colorado Springs, CO
Colorado Springs, CO, is notorious for its dry conditions. It’s been included in lists of the 10 driest cities in the nation. This dryness may help out with summer temperatures, but it can be annoying any time of the year because of what it does to the skin, eyes, and nose. In the winter, it is a major problem: it makes the cold feel worse and it causes a spike in the spread of flu right in the middle of flu season.

Why Low Humidity Is a Problem
In hot and humid places in the country, people might have a hard time thinking of dry air as anything but a positive. This is because the less moisture there is in the air, the faster heat escapes from the body, making the body feel cooler. But in our climate, losing heat is the last thing we want to happen during the winter! The lower the indoor humidity, the more a heating system has to run to keep up with comfort needs.
There are other issues from dry air. It causes chapped lips, itchy skin, and nose irritation. Dried up mucus membranes take away from a body’s defense against the spread of illness, which is why the flu thrives in dry weather. Low humidity can also damage wood furnishings and possessions, and cause paint to peel.
The Whole–House Humidifier Difference
The best humidifier to deal with indoor air that’s too dry (below 30% relative humidity) is a whole–house humidifier. You can purchase inexpensive portable room humidifiers, but these are only effective in small areas such as an infant’s room and they don’t offer much control.
A whole–house humidifier is integrated into the HVAC system and has its own controls, which can be made into part of the thermostat. Air from the HVAC system passes through the humidifier and receives moisture from a set of damp pads. When installed and operated correctly, a whole–house humidifier will keep the indoors around 50% relative humidity—an ideal balance between too dry and too humid.
