Combat dry air woes this winter with a chic humidifier for a more comfortable home

SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass., Dec. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Though many homeowners across the country may worry about inclement weather as temperatures dip this winter, one of the biggest sources of cold weather discomfort may actually be inside the home. A recent survey[1] conducted by the makers of Honeywell humidifiers found that Americans named dry skin and static cling as two of their top winter pet peeves. Using a humidifier, like the new Honeywell Designer Series Cool Mist Humidifier, can help temporarily relieve these and other discomforts resulting from dry winter air by adding essential moisture to any room.  


"Many of us know the uncomfortable feeling of dry, cold air during the winter months. As temperatures drop in the winter, the moisture is sucked out, causing a host of issues in the home from peeling paint and wallpaper to buckling floorboards and static electricity. The recommended relative humidity level for indoor spaces is between 40 and 60 percent, which is an optimal range for keeping potted plants, and even furniture and hardwood floors in prime condition," said Dr. Ted Myatt ScD, senior scientist with Environmental Health & Engineering and the University of Rhode Island.  

The Honeywell Designer Series Cool Moisture Humidifier makes it easy for homeowners to integrate a humidifier into any household environment. The filter-free humidifier features a unique and modern "tea kettle" design that fits seamlessly with any decor and easily fits under a faucet for refilling. Ultrasonic technology provides a fine visible mist and variable moisture controls allow users to customize how much mist is being released into the air. The Designer Series will run continuously for up to 48 hours between fillings, making it ideal for medium to large rooms, and shuts off automatically when it's empty.
