Re: Humidifier and Sleep - Please Help
From my experience, rooms tend to be dry in the winter if you have the wrong heating system. For example, space heaters "fry" the air and make it bone dry. In that case there is a simple solution. Replace your space heaters with portable radiator type heaters. They cost a little more (about 45 dollars each?) but are well worth the money. Many stores like Walmart will have them but it's a seasonal item so I'm not sure if they will be in stock at this time.
Another idea is to moisturize from the inside by drinking plenty of water during the day. Keeping yourself well hydrated can make a big difference.
I once had a floor-model humidifier and it got to be a problem. You need to add water and keep the water clean. If the water gets stale with bacteria, you will be putting polutants into the air. And it's a job to keep the water fresh and clean, in my opinion.
