This new Honeywell Cool Mist Humidifier is as stylish as it is effective and helps keep your home comfortable during the dry winter months.
I’m always excited to try out new products for our house, especially in the winter when a product is going to help benefit items IN my house. Honeywell recently sent our family their NEW Cool Moisture Humidifier to try out. The Cool Moisture Humidifier features a stylish design with the tank located in the back. What you’re getting is soothing moisture to help temporarily relieve dry air discomfort.
It’s no secret that low humidity levels in the home can affect your body (chapped lips, scratchy throat), but did you know that it can affect your home too?
In all honesty, I had no idea… but it makes perfect sense.
The designers of Honeywell Humidifiers and Dr. Ted Myatt, an indoor air scientist, just released new research on the 10 household items most impacted by relative humidity:
Wood Furniture: Has your favorite wooden bench seemed a little shakier? It could be because of low humidity. Wood absorbs and desorbs water as relative humidity rises and falls, which causes it to swell and shrink. This results in furniture joints becoming loose or even pulling apart.
Musical Instruments: Not sounding quite right? Low humidity levels may be to blame for your instrument falling out of tune. Natural wood instruments such as guitars, violins, and pianos can be damaged when the wood contracts resulting in failed glue joints or cracks.
Books: Low humidity causes the pages of books to become more brittle and fragile, and the dimensions of the pages can even change as the paper absorbs and desorbs water. This leads to wrinkles in the paper, flaking ink, or warped covers on books.
Woodwork and Wood Floors: If you’ve noticed a slight bend in your wood floors, or gaps between the planks, it could be because of low humidity. As the wood expands and contracts, mitered corners can separate and floors can “cup” so that the floor doesn’t remain flat.
Wine: Does your uncorked bottle of wine not taste right? Wine corks can dry out, shrink and crack if exposed to low humidity over time, allowing air to come into contact with the wine and potentially ruin the bottle.
Artwork: Maintaining humidity levels is vital for protecting artwork around the home. Low moisture levels tend to make paint brittle and prone to cracking, which is especially detrimental to oil paintings on canvas.
Stamp Collections: Much like books, repeated absorption, and desorption of water can ruin stamps by making them brittle or discolored.
Photograph Collections: Have you noticed your new photographs looking more like your parents’ photo albums? When photographs curl up at the ends, it’s likely due to low humidity levels. They can also result in the photo emulsion flaking off and damaging the photograph.
Walls: Peeling wallpaper and separated drywall seams can be a sign of low humidity in the home. The porous materials may crack and separate when exposed to low levels.
Electronic Equipment: Static electricity brought on by low humidity levels can damage internal components of computers, televisions and other electronics – a lot more damaging than dealing with static in your hair!
Pretty amazing, right? We don’t have all of these items in our home, but we have a good many of them – books, electronic equipment, artwork, wine, wood floors, etc.
