During winter, there are a few complications that are less prevalent during the other three seasons however the best way to make it through winter is with a humidifier.
A humidifier is a device which increases the moisture in the air and depending on the size can work in a single room or can humidify an entire building. Winter air is dry, and the humidifier can put some moisture back in the air, although this may seem relatively mundane there are quite a few benefits to this device.
Humidifiers can help make your home feel warmer as the more moisture that is in the air, the warmer it feels. This allows you to keep your thermostat at a lower setting and save on electricity; running a humidifier has less of an impact that running your furnace.
Speeds up healing
Colds, flus and sinus infections are almost synonymous with the winter season as the likelihood of getting sick during this time increases. Thankfully, your symptoms can be reduced through the use of a humidifier. The dry air makes the mucus become thick and dry and your sinuses are unable to drain correctly. By adding that much needed moisture you are able to breathe easier, your sinuses can drain better and you can overcome your illness much faster.

During winter, the dry air increases the possibility of being shocked from your carpet, clothing or even your pet! Static electricity can build up on textiles until it has the opportunity to be discharged, and sometime it may be through you.

Finally, dry itchy skin and cracked lips are very prevalent during winter, and can be both annoying and painful. Exposure to the dry air further exacerbates the situation, and using various creams and lotions may not always help as the air is taking moisture directly from your skin. Sleeping with the humidifier helps to put back the moisture which would have been lost previously and helps your skin to glow and remain supple.
