The air we breath is far more important than we often think or realize. It can make the difference between health and sickness, feeling good and feeling down, amount of energy we have and many more critical factors. Often people do not realize that some of the problems or complications they have in life can come from the wrong type of environment.
A good example, take someone who suffers with Sinus, this can be an ongoing problem that causes a lot of pain and ends up with the frequent use of heavy pain killers like Codeine, which can result in other health problems . In fairness this could be caused and irritated by common allergies but I believe the humidity in the air can be a huge contributing factor.
Sleeping well is so important to feeling good, mental health, energy levels and more factors. Adjusting the humidity in the air can clear the airways and lead to a better quality of sleep.
Babies are affected even more by air quality and can often have all sorts of nasal problems and bad sleeping patterns from bad air quality that much too dry Installing a home humidifier can help improve air quality and therefore restore decent sleeping patterns. This will make a huge improvement to the mood of the whole household, not just the baby!

There are many more but this short list should be enough to think about a home humidifier
Humidity problems are at the worst during the Winter months from the extended use of heaters and Air Conditioning to keep us warm. The problem stems from the heating which dries out the air and leads to many of the problems in the list above. A simple humidifier adds moisture to the air counteracting the effects from the heating systems. After all, it is not natural to live in an environment with such dry air.
There are quite a few different types of home humidifiers to choose from with varying costs. An example of the most expensive for sale would be the whole house humidifier type systems, these are more of a permanent installation and are quite expensive. The top of the range ones are computer controlled and you can set the percentage of humidity in the air.
Most commonly are the smaller units, like bird humidifier, that simply plug in to the wall and are filled with tap water. Very simple to use and setup, also easy to move from room to room.
