If you’re considering a baby humidifier for your nursery, chances are that the air is dry throughout the entire house - not just in the nursery. And no one in the family, baby included, stays in one room all the time.
Dry air can cause a number of comfort issues, such as sore throat, dry eyes, and dry and itchy skin. Even worse, many viruses also thrive in low-humidity environments that often exist in homes during the heating season.
Addressing these health and comfort issues can be particularly important if you have a baby in the house. Babies often have more delicate skin, are more prone to infections, and viruses. Proper humidification in the nursery and throughout the home is something every parent should consider.
Whole-home Baby Humidifier Advantages
Less Maintenance: Whole-home units only require a seasonal change of the water panel. Water must be added to a room humidifier almost daily.
Out of Sight, Out of Mind: Whole-home baby humidifiers are installed directly into your home’s central heating and cooling system, so they are located in a furnace closet or basement.
Quiet Operation: Whole-home humidifiers use the furnace fan to circulate humidified air. Room humidifiers must use their own fan, which can be as noisy as a portable air conditioner and could disrupt a baby’s sleep if placed in a nursery.
Energy Efficient: A portable baby humidifier may use more energy to humidify a single room than a whole-home unit would require to humidify the entire house.
