Let’s face it: Many people only think to use a humidifier when they are sick. What you may not know is that a humidifier improves indoor air quality to help you breathe easier and they serve up many more benefits. Still not sure what those benefits are? Check out our humidifier myth busters below!

Humidifiers Help Furniture Last Longer

TRUTH! Not only does a humidifier help make your wood furnishing last longer but it can help wood flooring and wallpaper last longer too. When there is no moisture in the air, hardwood flooring and furniture will start to develop cracks. By using a humidifier, you will maintain the proper humidity level and increase the life of your home.

Cool Mist Humidifiers Are Noisy

MYTH! Cool Mist Humidifiers don’t have to be noisy. All of our Crane Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifiers run whisper quiet and have been proven to help reduce mold and bacteria growth by up to 99.96%.

Humidifiers Help With Snoring

TRUTH! Do you sleep next to someone who snores or are you the culprit? Snoring is caused by many factors and dry air can contribute to snoring by creating congestion. When someone is congested, it will restrict the normal breathing pattern which can cause someone to snore. A humidifier will help remove the dry air that allows for more natural breathing and help eliminate snoring.

Humidifiers Only Help You When You Have A Cold

MYTH! When you have a cold, one of the first things a doctor advises is for you to run a humidifier. Humidifiers are great when you have a cold, but they also help with so many other things. From keeping your indoor plants healthier that typically suffer in dry climates or winter months to helping babies sleep better. What mom doesn’t love that?  Using a humidifier at night can also help relieve:

  • Dry throats
  • A runny nose & nose bleeds
  • Chapped lips
  • Dry eyes & skin
  • Itchy & Dry Skin
  • Congestion

Animals Benefit From Humidifiers

TRUTH! Dogs and cats get colds like us humans and the symptoms can be very similar – sneezing, coughing and runny nose. When a dog is boarded, they can also develop a kennel cough which affects the air passage of your dog. When you keep the air moist with a humidifier, it can relieve your pet’s air passage, help them breathe normally, and help alleviate their cold-like symptoms. Place the humidifier in the room where your dog or cat sleeps or spends most of their day.
