Adding moisture makes it more of a challenge and helps prevent illness in the household, or at least the passing along of germs from one family member to another.

So, reintroducing moisture back into the air helps to alleviate dryness in areas like the nose and throat. This makes it much more comfortable when you do have cold symptoms or the flu. Plus,the recovery time is faster for conditions that have a humidifier in place, this goes for allergies too.
Dry air even impacts factors like your hair and skin. If you have chapped lips all winter long, you need more humidity in the air. Yet, the positive effects you feel you can enjoy from a whole-house humidifier – all year long.
