It’s not just deserts and arid climates that have dry air; the air inside your home can also be quite dry, even too dry. When air lacks enough moisture, it can cause dry and itchy skin, eyes, nose, and throat. The easiest way to solve this problem and add moisture into your home’s air is with a humidifier. Adding humidity to the air is also beneficial for decreasing static electricity and preventing woodend furniture from peeling and cracking.
Whereas common standalone humidifiers use a reservoir tank of water — which can quickly lead to mold and mildew growth particularly if not cleaned regularly — a flow-through humidifier gets added directly to any forced air heating system and does not rely on a reservoir. Flow-through humidifiers are designed to be easy to maintain because they don’t have any moving parts. This design also prevents mold or mineral buildup.
