It's our gas furnaces, wood pellet stoves and fireplaces that dry out the air in our homes. Very low humidity allows dust and pet dander to float in the air. This dryness also causes your skin and lips to dry out and even crack. Lotions and lip balm can help with your lips and skin, but that dust and dander are still floating in the air.
It is common for people to use a humidifier in their homes to counteract the drying effects of their heating units. A humidifier can help keep your home more comfortable and protect skin, lips and even furniture from excessive dryness. Unfortunately, the humidifier alone does little to alleviate the problems of colds, flu and allergies.
What's really needed is an air purifier or humidifier purifier combination. Air purifiers trap or even destroy the tiniest particles in the aid including dust and dust mites, bacteria, smoke and pet dander. To fight allergies and illness, you'll need a good air purifier that removes the smallest particles from the air.
