    What McCall’s Can Tell Customers About the Importance of Humidifiers

    What McCall’s Can Tell Customers About the Importance of Humidifiers

    According to McCall's, humidifiers offer major benefits to homeowners.

    Benefits of humidifiers

    McCall’s Supply dealers have heard all of the most common questions about humidifiers. We understand that it’s not necessarily obvious why anyone would need a humidifier in our normally mild and generally quite humid climate. But we know exactly how beneficial a humidifier can be in the middle of the winter. The real issue then, is how to convey this information to your customers. Here are some tips from our McCall’s staff:

    Winter is Drier than Summer

    In the winter as the air cools down, humidity levels drop, and the air becomes drier. Even if it’s still not as dry as it is in some of the more southwestern states, this drier air still makes a huge difference in air quality and how your body feels.

    Humid Air Stays Warmer Longer

    When you turn on the heat in the winter, when the air is dry it isn’t able to hold heat for as long, which makes your heating system less efficient. It’s easy to correct this, as adding a humidifier restores moisture to the air, allowing it to hold heat better and allowing your HVAC to work more efficiently.

    The Right Humidity Levels Offer Body Benefits

    Air that is in range of the ideal relative humidity, which in your home is between 40% and 60%, helps keep you looking and feeling better. Here are a few reasons why:

    • Humid air relieves congested sinuses, nasal passages, and runny noses.

    • When relative humidity is kept within the ideal range, viruses are less likely to thrive, reducing your chances of getting sick.

    • If snoring is a factor in your life, you can rest assured that the right humidity levels will help reduce snoring.

    • Your skin looks better, healthier, and younger when you maintain the right humidity level in your home.

    With all of the benefits of a humidifier, it’s easy to show customers a humidifier is a great investment for their home. If they aren’t convinced, just tell them what McCall’s Supply technicians tell their customers.
