Home Humidifiers in Sudbury & Hopkinton

Eliminate dry air with a home humidifier

Dry home air can cause more than physical discomfort to your irritated, itchy nose, throat, lips or skin. Dry air can also increase asthma and allergy symptoms, which can intensify during the cold, winter months. Household furnishings can also suffer from dry air, as it draws out moisture from wooden chairs, floors, and other fixtures, while winter heating can cause static electricity, peeling wallpaper, cracked paint, and splitting furniture.

One of the biggest offsets to dry air is having the climate feel cooler, forcing you to crank up the thermostat and spend more on utility bills. Meacham Companies can help alleviate these nuisances and more with our portable and whole-house humidifiers that can be installed with your heating and cooling system. We expertly serve Hopkinton, Auburn, Sudbury, and nearby.

How a home humidifier can help you

Massachusetts is loved for its beautiful, everchanging seasons, with people traveling far and wide to see the lush, floral springs, mild, beachy summers, vibrant autumn foliage and the blanketed fields of snow – but what are homeowners to do with dry air that only worsens in the winter? Home humidifiers not only help balance home temperatures, effectively lowering your utility bills and boosting comfort levels, but they also provide you and your family with health and physical advantages.

Benefits of a home humidifier:

  • Reduces airborne illness: Increasing moisture levels in the air prevents germs from spreading. Once bacteria mixes with air moisture, it becomes less dense and drops. According to a recent study published in PLOS ONE, increasing humidity levels to 43% weakened 85% of airborne viruses.
  • Prevents dry skin: Since the human body is made up of mostly water, a dry climate will draw out moisture, leaving you with dry and uncomfortable skin, slips, hair, throat and more.
  • Relieves allergy and asthma symptoms: Outdated humidifiers have been known to exacerbate allergy and asthma symptoms, as they would put too much moisture in the air. But times have changed and newer, more efficient models have been designed to help. With the ability to adjust humidity levels, homeowners can alleviate throat tissue and soothe nasal passages, reducing allergy and asthma symptoms and creating a healthier environment.
  • Improves sleep: When nasal passages and throats are itchy and inflamed, snoring is often an unfortunate side effect. Keeping the environment moist helps soothe irritated nasal passages and throats, leading to a more comfortable, quiet sleep.
  • Protects wood furnishings: Dry air pulls moisture from wooden chairs, floors, and other home fixtures, causing cracks and splintering. Increasing humidity will stop this process and protect your home's wooden furnishings.
  • Lowers utility costs: Dry air causes the air to feel cooler, causing you to crank up the heat to compensate. Adding more humidity to the air will help your house feel warmer, lower your energy bills, and help optimize your energy use.

Dry air can be a problem in almost any home, but it is most common in semi-arid climates and those that required forced air heating during the cooler months of the year. In fact, during the winter months, the combination of cool, outdoor air and forced furnace heat can cause your home to be drier than the Sahara Desert.
