Does anyone in your family catch colds or suffer from dry throat and flaky skin during the winter months?
These are all possible signs that the humidity levels in your home may be too low. To put it into perspective, in the winter time, humidity levels can drop to as low as 10% - drier than the Sahara desert! Vicks humidifiers are here for you when your family needs them most. By restoring essential moisture to any room, Vicks humidifiers can help you get ready before cold and flu season starts, and they help provide soothing relief once those coughs, sneezes, and congestion strike.
Generally, humidifiers provide the greatest benefit in the cold winter months, but in dryer climates they can be used year-round too.

Be sure that you don't over humidify. Moisture in the air is good, but too much isn’t. If you start to see condensation on the windows or the air feels damp, then it’s time to turn your humidifying efforts down a notch. Try using a Vicks Humidity Monitor to help monitor your indoor humidity levels. A comfortable and optimal humidity level is between 40-60%.
*A study by Environmental Health and Engineering (Environmental Health 2010, 9:55) shows that keeping air at relative humidity levels between 40-60% can reduce survival of flu viruses on surfaces and in the air. Humidifiers can help achieve and maintain this humidity level.
