Use Humidifiers & Dehumidifiers to Improve Indoor Air Quality Admit it. We tend to focus on what the meteorologist tells us will happen here in Denver. The weather outlook controls our schedules, and can even affect our emotions. And what we may not realize is that weather patterns also have an effect everything inside our homes, from furniture to your health. Of course, we mean the impact humidity can have when it isn’t monitored. Balancing humidity is similar to balancing a low-carb diet. Too much or too little could be harmful. But it is possible to find that perfect spot. With too much moisture in the house, the air can get stuffy and feels warmer than actual temperatures. Microbes, mildew, fungi, bacteria, and viruses flourish in this environment. When there’s too little moisture, skin can get dry, throats get sore, and wooden furniture, flooring and walls—and even instruments—can warp. Humidity levels between 35% and 50% are perfect for comfort. But if you want an environment that’s free from microbes and that won’t damage wood, the humidity levels will be best between 45% and 50%. To help, a steam humidifier and a dehumidifier can provide a great solution. Whole-home central humidifiers keep humidity within 1% of your preferred levels throughout your home, creating a healthier living area, lessening dry sinuses, itchy skin and sore throats, and keeping wood from cracking or warping. It may also reduce the occurrences of bacteria, viruses and respiratory infections. Whole-home central dehumidifiers eliminate extra moisture, diminish dust mites and mold, and also protect wood from damage. Plus, they are way easier to use and less intrusive than bulky one-room products. Regardless of the forecast for Denver, humidity will repeatedly be a factor in your home.
