Humidifier Services in Dayton, OH
Although we offer a variety of styles of humidifiers, they all do the same thing: humidifiers add moisture to the air. This moisture raises the level of humidity in your home, penetrating the air molecules you breathe, which goes a long way in alleviating a lot of common cold-weather conditions. This can also help reduce the static electricity in your home (common during Ohio’s winter months) and prevent dry cracking in paint and furniture. Most importantly, humidifiers can help to improve indoor air quality and relieve a variety of health issues.
Among those issues, using humidifiers helps alleviate dry throat, hay fever, nose bleeds, cold symptoms like “runny noses,” dry skin, chapped lips, asthma and allergy flare-ups, sinus congestion, and dry eyes. Schedule humidifier services with us today!

What is Indoor Air Quality?
According to the EPA, Indoor Air Quality refers to the quality of air within a building, particularly as it concerns the health and comfort of the building’s occupants. Experts say reducing indoor pollutants can help reduce the risk of indoor health concerns. The various health effects from indoor air pollutants can be experienced right after exposure or, possibly, even years later.
Understanding Why Indoor Air Quality Is Important
Having quality indoor air to breathe is critical for good health. The majority of Americans spend a significant amount of their time indoors — either in their home, an office, or other types of work buildings and factories — where gases, chemicals, and other types of pollutants can cause headaches, allergies, eye irritation, and fatigue. Some of the more serious indoor pollutants can even cause certain types of cancers, including serious long-term health problems. Experts say reducing indoor pollutants can help reduce the risk of indoor health concerns. The various health effects from indoor air pollutants can be experienced right after exposure or, possibly, even years later.
3 Benefits of a Humidifier
Some humidifier owners see that their skin, lips, and hair become dry and fragile from the cold, winter air outside. Using a humidifier to add moisture to the indoor air may reduce the occurrence of dry, cracked skin.
Increasing the amount of moisture in the air can also reduce snoring. If the air is dry, a person’s airways are less likely to be adequately lubricated, making snoring worse. Adding humidity to the air by running a humidifier at night may help to relieve snoring symptoms.
The authors of a study noted that humidifiers might reduce the risk of catching the flu. After adding the influenza virus to the air with a simulated cough, researchers found that humidity levels above 40 percent rapidly deactivated virus particles, making them much less likely to be infectious.
