Sleep Better with a Whole House Humidifier


The holiday season is upon us and perhaps you’ve been wondering what Santa might bring you this year. While you may have your heart set on a 4K TV or the latest smartphone, consider the gift of a whole-house humidifier for your home. 

‘Tis the season when you’ll want to feel certain that your home is a cozy and comfy sanctuary. An essential part of being comfortable in your home is having ideal humidity levels, which is just as important to your overall comfort as setting the right temperature. 

A Whole House Humidifier For Your Ho-Ho-Home

Yes, we know those home improvements aren’t the first things that come to mind when thinking about gift ideas for the holidays. But improving your indoor air quality is a gift that will keep on giving throughout the year.

Although it’s easy to ignore humidity levels in your home, their negative effects can be hard to live with. For example, poor humidity can actually have a huge impact on your quality of sleep. Read on to learn how a whole-house humidifier can give you a better night’s sleep.

Decrease Snoring

When the air in your home is too dry, it can also dry out your nasal passages and cause inflammation. As a result, dry air contributes to snoring. If anyone in your home snores, you know just how hard it can be to fall asleep–and stay asleep! 

Dry and inflamed throats and nasal passages can cause louder, more frequent snoring. Studies have shown that when humidity levels in a home improve, the home’s occupants snore less. And that automatically means that sleep levels improve as a result of decreased humidity.

Sleep More Comfortably and Soundly

When the humidity levels in your home are properly balanced, overall your home will feel warmer and thus, more comfortable. When you aren’t woken up by midnight chills, you just might get that coveted 8 hours of peaceful sleep every night.

We know that it might be tempting to purchase a portable humidifier, but these are like putting a band-aid on a broken arm. Whole-house humidifiers fix the humidity levels in every room of your home–not just the ones that have a portable humidifier. Plus, you’ll sleep better knowing you have a system that you can depend on for life.

A Healthier You Means Better Sleep

Low humidity causes dry skin, lips, and hair, itchy throats and noses, and inflamed nasal passages and mucous membranes. When your skin and airways are dry and inflamed, it not only is uncomfortable to live with, it can increase your susceptibility to colds and respiratory illness.

When you’re suffering from colds and discomfort, it’s impossible to get a good night’s sleep. When the air in your home is balanced, the result is a healthier you. And that automatically means a better night’s sleep.

There are too many other things keeping you awake at night. Don’t let dry air be one of them! When it comes to getting a whole-house humidifier in Colorado Springs, you can count on us for expert installation.
