How they work

A humidifier works to put moisture back in the air, so the air is not as dry. There’s more than one type of humidifier, but at the most basic level, the device emits water vapor into a space to increase the level of humidity. When used correctly, humidifiers can help to alleviate dry skin, chapped lips, nosebleeds and other pesky cold-weather conditions.

Keep them clean

Humidifiers do more good than bad, as long as you clean them properly. Without regular care, a dirty humidifier could promote bacteria and mold growth. You also want to ensure that your humidifier does not make your home too humid. The ideal indoor humidity levels can vary. Ideal levels of humidity for your living space will be less than 60 percent in the summer. They will be between 25 and 40 percent in the winter. You can monitor the indoor humidity of your home. Do so by looking for an increase in condensation, mold or insects in your home.
