There are bacteria which can live on a low humidity environment. These bacteria can lead to health problems especially on the respiratory, nasal, skin and eyes. Having a humidifier at home, whether a cool mist or warm mist, can help alleviate certain health problems, including but not limited to sinusitis, asthma, allergies, dehydrated skin, and cold and flu symptoms.
