Especially in winter, many people suffer from dry air in the house. Because we heat our homes in cold times, the relative humidity drops indoors. With a normal living room temperature, the ideal air humidity is around 55%, but in winter the humidity in the house can sometimes drop to only 30%. With a humidifier you prevent a dry air and check the humidity in the house.
Air is the basis of our existence. We breathe in and out about 20,000 times every day and more than 12,000 liters of air flow through our lungs every day. The quality of this air is decisive for our health and well-being. A common problem is too low humidity. Above we already talked about low humidity in winter: often around 30%, while 55% is the ideal humidity level. A dry air at home can lead to dehydrated airways, burning eyes, reduced resistance and other annoying physical and sometimes even psychological symptoms (more information below). Dry air is also an attack on your furniture and wooden floors. It is therefore very important that you keep the air humidity and climate in your living room, bedroom or office up to standard. In this range you will find not only air humidifiers, but also dehumidifiers (to put an end to humidity in the house), air cleaners, air scrubbers and other instruments to monitor the air quality.
What does dry air do to my health?
Apart from the adverse effects on your furniture or wooden floor, dry air can lead to unpleasant health complaints: • Cold feeling at a normal temperature • Dried out or irritated mucous membranes in the nose and pharynx • Stinging throat • Dry cough • Dry, flaky skin • Cracked lips • Dry, burning eyes • Irritating contact lenses • Irritated airways • Increased risk of infections • Reduced resistance • Headache • Fatigue • Concentration problems To reduce or prevent such complaints, a humidifier can provide a solution.

Whether you are looking for an ultrasonic humidifier, an evaporator or a vaporiser (also called evaporator), with Frank you will find the ideal humidifier.
