Air Filters / Humidifiers

Do you need an air Filter ? Yes you absolutely do in fact now a days everyone should have one. The air in our home is no longer as clean as it was when we were kids and in many cases the only break your lungs may get in a day is when your at home so the cleaner the air the better. Its a matter of Health. When it comes to a humidifier its very simple if you feel the air is dry in your home or your have dry skin chapped lips or you wake up very thirsty then you need a humidifier. Most people will be able to judge for themselves if they need a humidifier.
