It’s no secret that winters in New Jersey can get particularly cold, and very dry. This dryness can actually contribute to a few different problems for not only your home, but also for your health.

Distinguishing Between Evaporative and Steam Humidifiers
There are many benefits to whole–house humidification, which we’ve highlighted below. However, do you know the difference between an evaporative and steam humidifier? More so, do you know which one is the best humidifier for you and your home?
Steam humidifiers boil water, which creates a steam. This steam is introduced into your air stream through a dispersion tube mounted in the ducts. The benefit of this type of humidifier is that it does not require a forced–air HVAC system in order to operate. However, they do cost a bit more than their evaporative counterparts.
Evaporative humidifiers work by using forced air heat to provide pure vapor humidity throughout your home. This prevents minerals from entering your home’s air stream. The biggest advantage to this system is that it costs less and uses less electricity. However, they do require a forced air system in order to function.
Why Whole–House Humidification Is Best
The signs that your air does not have a sufficient amount of moisture in it are not always obvious. In fact, most homeowners would not even immediately connect home and health problems to a lack of humidity. However, they may notice that over time they suffer from dry skin and other ill health effects.
Another sign of low humidity is property damage such as cracking wallpaper or chipping paint. You might even notice the wood in your home splitting as a result of dry air. By using a whole–house humidifier, you can humidify the air throughout your entire living space. You don’t have to worry about moving a unit around or continually refilling it with water.
