The season of dry hands and sore throats is around the corner. If you’re looking for ways to combat these inevitable winter symptoms, a whole house humidifier might be just what the doctor ordered. When you get a home humidifier, here are some health benefits that you could experience during the long winter months.
One of the immediate benefits of a whole house humidifier is it may help you stay asleep. When humidity levels are low, your respiratory system dries out quickly causing snoring, sneezing, coughing, and sore throat that can disrupt a good night of sleep. Having a whole house humidifier can potentially relieve these symptoms and make it easier to breathe while you sleep, allowing less disruptions.
We’ve all experienced that annoying pain of dry, cracking hands. No matter the amount of moisturizer, sometimes dry skin just won’t go away. With a home humidifier, you can bring natural moisture back into the air of your home, which could improve the look and feel of your skin. Not only could a home humidifier benefit dry skin, but it can also help other forms of dryness like cracked lips, bloody noses, and itchy eyes.
Reduce Illness & Allergies
One of the worst side effects of winter is the corresponding health problems that arise with the lower humidity levels. Unfortunately, viruses and allergens thrive in climates with low humidity. When our respiratory systems are already dried out from these low humidity levels, it makes the transfer of illnesses that much easier and harder to get rid of. Additionally, if you have weather-related allergy symptoms, the side effects of low humidity can make your nose and throat feel that much worse. By adding a whole house humidifier to your home, you can restore humidity in the air that could help improve your illness and/or allergies.
Not only are home humidifiers great for your health, they also could save you money in the long run! Adding more moisture to the air in your home with a whole house humidifier can make it feel warmer so you can lower your thermostat and reduce your energy bill during winter.
