When winter weather causes you to turn on your heating system, you may start to notice that the air inside your home will feel dry, or less humid—a normal result of your heating system pulling moisture out of the air. If you are prone to allergies, catching cold, or even nosebleeds, having moisture in the air can be a big help for you this season.
A humidifier can help reduce these uncomfortable effects of dry air brought on by your heating system. Read on to learn some of the top ways that a humidifier can improve the health and wellness of your family this winter.
1. Reduce the Risk of Infection or Colds
The viruses and bacteria that make your family sick can’t travel well when the air in your home is moist. When you run a humidifier, you may find that your family fights off cold and flu symptoms that go around your community a little easier.
2. Heal More Quickly
Even though a humidifier will reduce your risk of getting a cold, you can still succumb to germs. When you run a humidifier, you may find that you get better faster. By keeping your nose and throat moist, your symptoms will be less severe, so your body will have the energy to fight the bug more quickly.
3. Improved Skin
Dry air will pull the moisture from your skin. This can lead to flaking, dryness, and itching. Running a humidifier can put a stop to the problems you face because of dry skin, and may even improve the vibrancy and overall look of your skin.
4. Protection for Your Throat
If you wake with a sore, itchy throat, it may be due to dry air. If you start using a humidifier, you might stop waking up with a dry or scratchy throat! The moisture in the air will coat your throat and reduce the discomfort you feel in the morning.
5. Better Sleep
Snoring can make it difficult for those you share your home with to sleep. When your sinuses or throat becomes dry, you are more prone to snoring. When you make your home environment moist with the help of a humidifier, you may find that you or your family members snore less severely. This, in turn, leads to better sleep for the entire family.
