In many regions, winter weather is associated with ultra dry climates both indoors and outside. This dryness often results in sinus issues and not so great looking skin throughout the cold months. People who spend a great deal of time indoors are particularly affected, because most heating systems produce a great deal of dry warm air to keep homes and offices from becoming human refrigerators during winter. While one cannot do much to change outdoor weather conditions, the addition of a humidifier to one’s living space can help to alleviate dry sinuses and even help to encourage the body’s healing processes when cold and flu viruses strike. Here are some of the top humidifier models.
