4 Benefits of Whole-Home Humidifiers
Winter weather dries out the air in our homes to the point it can be too dry. When dry air is a problem in the home, a humidifier can be very helpful. It turns out people are more likely to benefit from a humidifier during the cold months when cold air dries out the nose, lungs, and lips. Because furnaces or central heating systems can dry out the air indoors even more, sometimes a humidifier is a must.
HELPS PREVENT THE FLU
Experts say humidifiers can help reduce the risk of getting and spreading the flu. In one study, researchers found that humidity levels above 40% rapidly deactivated virus particles. This made them much less likely to be infectious.
THEY BENEFIT YOUR HOME
If the air is extremely dry, the moisture from a humidifier can be very helpful for the home itself. Any moisture-loving houseplants can become more vibrant, and wood floors or wood furniture will last longer. Humidity also helps prevent the wallpaper from cracking and static electricity from building up and causing issues. Humid air holds heat better and feels warmer than dry air. Because of this, humidifiers can help you save money on utility bills during the winter.
KEEPING SKIN AND HAIR MOIST
Some people notice that their lips, skin, and hair are fragile and dry during the wintertime. A lot of heating units pump out heated air that’s dry throughout the home or office. This can make the skin dry, flaky, or itchy. Cold air from the outside can also dry the skin out. Using a humidifier to add moisture to the air indoors can help reduce the occurrence of dry skin that’s cracked.
Increasing the amount of humidity in the air in your home can also reduce snoring if that’s an issue in your home. When the air is dry, a person’s airways are less likely to be sufficiently lubricated. This can make snoring worse. However, adding humidity with the use of a humidifier at night can help to relieve these symptoms.
