You may have never given humidity much thought, but it has a strong impact on your comfort. During the summer, high humidity makes the already hot temperatures feel even hotter, while the lack of humidity in the winter makes the air feel colder than it is — and it’s already freezing!
Some things that can impact the price are:
- The type of whole house humidifier you want
- The size of your house
- The contractor’s hourly rate

Here are just a few of the personal complications that come from a lack of humidity in your house in winter.
- Dry, Cracked Skin & Lips – Just like our bodies need hydration, our skin does as well, and winter air on top of a home without humidity is just the right recipe for painful, cracking skin. The most frequent victim of this lack of moisture is often our lips, which can become painful and unsightly because of overly dry air. and the sensitive skin on our lips can be the first to suffer when we lack adequate moisture in the air.
- Sinus Congestion/ Sinus Headache – Dry weather can cause our sinuses to swell, which can create congestion as well as seriously unpleasant sinus pain.
- Irritated Vocal Cords & Dry Cough – You may notice some people have a difficult time speaking when it is very cold out. The same people suffer if there is a lack of humidity in their homes. The dry air continues to irritate the vocal cords, making your voice hoarse and sometimes painful to speak. Sometimes these individuals suffer from a dry cough, but coaching isn’t limited to those with vocal cord issues. The dry cough inflames the lungs causing further coughing, a cycle that will continue until you can get relief.
- Nose Bleeds – If you or a family member gets frequent nose bleeds, you probably already know a dry, dehumidified environment will only make their nose bleeds more serious. These nosebleeds can occur so often that they can take place in your sleep or begin at the drop of a hat.
