Here is the latest letter from one of our readers:

Dear Keven,

I have so much static in my house, so I am guessing that means it is dry. I get nervous turning on lights in my house, as when I flip the switch I get a shock on my finger. I have a humidifier but can’t tell if it working.  It is the type of humidifier with the foam pad that is in a tube/circular shape. It stopped working years ago, but I am thinking that since there is water in there, basically that is still doing the trick.

Signed,

Static in the Air

Dear Keven,

With the weather changing, I’m finding the air a lot dryer in my home. This is resulting in dryer skin and an onset of migraines for my dear husband. What options are there to provide decent humidity to my home without requiring lots of maintenance?

Sincerely,

Aching for Humidity

Waking up to a fresh snowfall is certainly one of the most picturesque moments of an Edmonton winter. However, most of us will do everything in our power to keep Jack Frost outside where he belongs. By shutting the windows and cranking up the thermostat, we create an environment of dry, stagnant air that is a prime breeding ground for respiratory infection. An ideal way to battle these dry conditions is with a humidifier.

Say Goodbye to Dry Eyes, Chapped Lips, and Rough Skin

Before you spend money on ChapStick, lotions, and eye drops try setting up a humidifier in your bedroom. A simple, natural way to quench your body’s thirst for moisture! The soft drone of the humidifier might even help you fall asleep.

Combat Winter Infection

Hydrated air will keep the insides of your nose and lungs moist, allowing the tiny hairs to block the dust and bacteria that cause respiratory infection. If you’re already fighting a winter cold, using a humidifier can actually speed up the healing process by improving your lungs elasticity and keeping your nasal passages lubricated.

Alleviate Snoring

The hydrated air created by a humidifier can help prevent your throat from drying out while sleeping, which is good news for snorers. It’s even better news for the spouses of snorers since a moist throat will help suppress the intensity of the snoring sound, allowing a better night’s sleep for everyone involved.

Prevent Nose Bleeds

If you are prone to nosebleeds, they’re likely to worsen during the winter months due to dry conditions. By keeping the inside of your nose moist, you should notice a significant decrease in problems.

An effective and inexpensive way to monitor the humidity in your home is to buy a hygrometer, which you can find at most hardware stores. The optimal humidity level for your home and workplace is 35-45%
