I live at 8000 feet. It's dry as shit up here. I am a humidity buff, if you will; I own more than one hygrometer. I have had a septoplasty. Getting the best air possible into my nose is a true hobby. I've been around the humidifier block and feel comfortable making the following recommendation: after a some years of experimentation and unhappiness, with several brands and all technologies, I have happily settled on this Honeywell evaporative humidifier. I treat the water with this stuff and get about 2 months out of a filter and a gallon of treatment. So we are talking $10/month in ongoing humidity costs, but this is honestly the price one must pay in the Rockies for maximum breathing enjoyment. I clean it when I swap filters, which is easy enough that I don't mind doing it. By no means is this a "drop $50 and be done with it" solution, but I got tired of the bullshit ghetto buy-it-every-3-months OTC devices.

I dump a good 5 gallons a day into my indoor air in the dry months; I really cannot afford to fuck around with shit that doesn't work. If don't keep the humidity up, the wife and I get nosebleeds because it's so freaking arid here. This thing is a champ. My sleep got better with this bad boy. I have another in-box on deck in case this one goes down.

I assume if one's moisture supplementation needs we not a drastic as mine, this device could go longer between filters, assuming treated water.

Here you go: BTU Calculator.

The size of heater depends on how hot you want the room, and how cold the room is normally. Let's say you want to raise the temperature by 30 degrees, and your ceilings are 10 feet high (which is actually pretty low, your ceilings are probably higher), you'll need a heater that puts out 36000 BTUs/hour (around 10K watts).

This heater, for example, won't cut it. You'll want something more like this (and possibly even two of these) -- which is, of course, more expensive. And you'll probably also want a large-space humidifier, possibly something like this.

Then you'll have to add in the cost of operating the heater, which depends on the price of gas in your area. Electric heaters almost certainly won't cut it for a commercial space.

I too suffer from palmar psoriasis (plantar also)

I really, really hope yours stays at this level forever, and it might. There are a bunch of treatment options to keep it under control when it's at this level. But also understand that it may get worse.

Mine looked like yours for many years. At age 50 it went nuts with no lifestyle changes. I'm now on Cosentyx along with Clobetasol ointment to keep things in check. The good news is I have it beat back to where I can function normally and am nearly clear.

When I was at your level of severity, UVB was actually fairly effective for me. First with office visits and then my insurer bought a light box after it was shown to be effective so I could do it at home. UVB doesn't work for everyone, but could be worth a try.

I also used Clobetasol ointment. It's another steroid topical. The ointment seemed to penetrate that scale on the palm better then the cream, so I preferred that.

Here's a comment I did on my care regimen when it got worse.

If you live in a climate where the air dries out at all, especially in the winter, I recommend a humidifier. It makes a big difference for me. I use this Honeywell model. Fair price, evaporative, big tanks, cheap replacement batting. Use a no-heat evaporative humidifier. It's the best for pumping a lot of moisture into the air.

Lastly, even though I have the psoriasis fairly controlled, I still live in nitrile gloves. I buy them by the case (1,300 Curad exam gloves for about $153 at and they'll last me about 8 months. The Curad gloves are a good price/performance point. Cooking, cleaning, working on the car, I always wear them. It continues to make a big difference for me. I will sometimes get a fissure still on a knuckle and the gloves help keep the air off of it and keeps it from stinging so much. I also wear them under work gloves for outdoor work. It helps. They seem yucky and clumsy at first when you wear them, but at this point they're completely natural for me. I keep boxes of gloves in several locations in the house and garage and put them on without thinking if I'm going to do anything with my hands.

Oh, you asked about continuing the steroid cream. I was told by my derm that the palms are a place where you can use the steroid topical forever as long as I take short breaks periodically because the skin is thick there. Your dermatologist is the one that should advise on this, but if possible I would continue with the steroid topical if it helps at all.

Best wishes.

I have the same problem with the low humidity: asthma, allergies, nose bleeds. We don't have a whole house humidifier so I use a combination of a Honeywell console humidifier and a Mabis Steam Inhaler. I keep them in whatever room I'm in.

They will go bad quickly with tap water so I bought a tabletop distiller. I put the water through a Brita filter first, then I distill it, and I use that in the humidifiers.

I use a little EVOO in my nostrils, especially at night.

Some of us just don't do well with low humidity. It's an ongoing battle.

u/AgedashiTofu · 2 pointsr/Reno

We have this Honeywell humidifier and it does a great job. We have a smaller single floor, 3 bedroom house and while it is a lot more powerful in whatever room it is placed in it does put out enough that it covers the majority of the house.

Out of the box, it was fairly quiet but over time things have loosened up inside so it can be a bit noisy - but nothing you couldn't sleep through.

u/Cyno01 · 2 pointsr/LifeProTips

Get a humidifier, theyre not expensive.


Your skin will thank you too.

u/skahunter831 · 2 pointsr/Charcuterie

Yeah it's a bit surprising that it's being used up that fast, especially in an enclosed environment... the fridge is well-sealed, right?

My 1.2 gal humidifier in a 24 cubic ft stand up freezer only needs refilling every week or so, and that's with a 4" hole and a fan going on for 15 minutes every other 30 minutes. But, my chamber is in the 55 degree basement, so it literally never cycles on (therefor, humidity isn't as quickly removed). Plus it is pretty full of meat, so that will help.

And now that I type that out, I wonder if that's your main problem, the fridge isn't full enough. When it has a lot of product, the volume of plain air is much lower, and the drying meat adds to the humidity. So the humidifier doesn't have to work as hard. But not in your case.

Regardless, I'd upgrade the humidifier, to something like this Vicks one I currently use with 1.2 gal capacity or this Crane one that I used to have (which worked fine, just wanted something a little bigger), or this huge unit from Honeywell which might actually be too big. Remember it MUST have a switch or a dial, because it needs to come back on when the power switches back on. Push button controls tend not to do that.

u/KosherizedFirearms · 1 pointr/GoodValue

We bought a whole house humidifier last year (that attaches to the ductwork) but because my furnace is in the vented attic (horrible design) it just doesn't seem to work well. A couple days ago I ordered this one
so I'll try to get back to this thread to evaluate it.

I was torn between the honeywell and the vornado posted in this thread, we'll see how it does for the ~1000 sq ft house

u/Akoustyk · 1 pointr/guitars

I know the one I got is one I'm happy with. It was really big, holds a lot of water, which means you don't need to fill it a lot, and it humidifies really well. On the fast mode especially, it does make some decent noise though. It also has a few fan settings, and it has a sensor so that it turns on/off as needed.

Some other ones use more sort of evaporation, which is more silent, but smaller capacity and humidifies less. So, it's hard for me to say what's the best for you in your particular situation. I haven't tried them all myself.

The one I got is this one:

It serves my purposes well. It does have a giant filter in it that needs replacing every so often, and a little rattle doomahickey as well, but I haven't bothered yet, personally. Idk how frequently you are supposed to change them but I have washed out my filter, and it cleaned really well.

Anyway those are the things to watch out for imo, replaceable parts, how much humidify power you get, and how much you need for your space, how much capacity for water it takes iow, how often you will need to refill it, and how much noise it makes.

Your space is smaller and more closed off than mine, so maybe something smaller would be ok for you. Sorry I can't be more helpful than that.

u/SpaceTrekkie · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

No directly skin care, but maybe invest in a cool mist humidfier that you can run 24/7? Getting one that is hepa filtered (I have bad allergies), and letting it run 24/7 in my gas-furnace heated house has made a world of difference as far as preventing winter dry skin and just feeling good.

I have this one, it runs for about 12 hours depending how high I have the humidity on it set and how dry it is outside before I need to refill it:
Honeywell Quiet Care

It is sufficient for my entire 1500 sqft house (but it is only 1 floor).

u/twatwaffIe · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

I'd highly recommend a humidifier. I just moved to an extremely cold and dry area in northern Canada. I noticed a huge increase in the amount of static, and my skin and nose were noticeably dry. I bought a Honeywell humidifier from Costco with a big capacity (similar to this: and noticed a huge difference within the day. It holds a couple gallons, so once you get the humidity up to around 40%, the containers last for a solid 24-36 hours before you need to refill, and it keeps the whole house at that level. Keep in mind - you have to clean or replace the filters with most humidifiers every couple weeks or months, depending on your water mineral/bacterial content, and a bit of bacteriostat in the water every other fill helps to prevent mold and algae buildup.

I had this issue. First, buy a hygrometer (measures humidity). You can find one at Walmart or Amazon for less than $10 usually. Here is a website that explains what the humidity % should be: Second, buy a humidifier. We bought this one ( and it has worked great.
