To have an ultimate comfort setting in your home, having the right level of humidity is vital. While some people prefer humidity levels at 80%, others might prefer the dryer air. However, most people enjoy humidity levels near 30%-50%. If you’ve been considering purchasing a humidifier for your home, you may be wondering what to look for.

In addition, you may be wondering how to tell if your air is not humid enough. While some people get obvious signs that they could benefit from a humidifier, that’s not the case for everyone. So how can you tell that you need a humidifier? Check out the list below for signs to look out for:

Itchy Eyes

While allergies, colds and other health conditions can lead to itchy eyes, so can low humidity. If you notice this symptom in your family, low humidity might be the culprit.

Increased Allergy Symptoms

Our respiratory systems prefer moist air. When the air is too dry, your lungs, throat, and sinuses won’t function properly. That being said, low humidity in your home can result making allergies even more frustrating and debilitating.

Nose Bleeds

If you or your family has constant nosebleeds while inside your home, low humidity could be the reason why. Low humidity levels can mean irritated and dry noses, which can lead to nosebleeds.

Dry and Itchy Skin

While many people dislike high humidity, it does wonders for your skin. Our skin looks and feels the best when there’s moisture in the air. That’s why you might notice that your skin feels best right after the shower. When humidity levels are low, you might notice dry and itchy skin.
