A Hiller Humidifier can lower heating costs and improve your comfort during cold weather season. In cold weather, air is much drier than in the warm months. Controlling the humidity in the winter helps prevent drying of nasal passages; dry nasal passages more easily allow contagious viruses to enter the nose and cause winter illness. Humidification also reduces static electricity when walking on carpet, and keeps wood furniture, doors, musical instruments, and other wood articles from shrinking and cracking during the dry season.

Let’s take a closer look at what a Hiller whole house humidifier can do for your home — and how to know if you need one.
How Do You Know if You Need A Humidifier?
A humidifier is a device that is designed to increase the amount of moisture in the air. The optimal moisture level in your home is between 40 to 60 percent. If the indoor air is too dry, then you most likely need a humidifier. There are many signs that you may notice if you need a humidifier.
1. You and Your Family Members Are Sick
Dry air can dry out your nasal passages. This can cause nosebleeds and irritation. Low humidity levels can also affect the mucous membranes. This can cause harmful particles to enter your nasal passages. It will be easier for illness to spread from person to person if the air in your home is too dry. In fact, one of the reasons that illnesses are more common during the winter months is because of the dry air.
2. Your Skin is Dry
If the air in your home is too dry, then your skin will likely be dry. You may experience cracking, chapping, flaking and itching if your skin is too dry. If you have an existing skin condition, such as acne or eczema, then it may be worsened by dry air. Additionally, you may notice that your hair is dry. One of the benefits of having a humidifier is that it can help people get relief from skin conditions. You may experience less burning, itching and discomfort if you suffer from eczema.
