Experiencing static shock may have been fun in science class, but it's not fun when you experience it at home.

Getting a static shock is painful and annoying. It's an effect of dry air, which is often the result of heating your home or living in an arid climate.

Not only is a static shock uncomfortable, it can also be costly. Electronic equipment can fall victim to static electric charges, requiring expensive repair or replacement.

Luckily, your family doesn't have to live with static shock.

"Humidifiers are commonly used in homes to relieve the physical discomforts of dry nose, throat, lips, and skin. The moisture they add to dry air also helps alleviate common nuisances brought on by winter heating, such as static electricity, splitting woodwork, and cracks in paint and furniture." -U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
