Hey all, wounding if anyone has any ideas that can help me. Our house is horribly dry in the winter. We have dry skin, nasal problems, static electricity, etc. Our Ecobee can read under 20% in the living room all winter. Everyone can agree that it is dry and we felt much better when I was running a small room humidifier. Therefore, I feel the need for a whole home humidifier. Makes sense to us.
However, one room in my house, the north facing upstairs will get condensation on the windows all winter. I've already noticed it in the morning this fall. I've had to put towels down before to keep from further ruining the window sills. Based on my research, this is due to excessive humidity. All that said, what can I do to add more humidity to my (seemingly) whole house, yet not damage this room with too much?
The last few winters I've put plastic over these windows simply to keep the draft out of the room (young child's bedroom) and I think that takes care of the condensation, but I can't recall for sure off the top of my head. It's just that as I'm finally pulling the trigger on the humidifier, I thought of this and am wondering if I'm going to be causing a larger problem in this single room of my house.
