Benefits of Using a Humidifier
The use of humidifiers during the winter months places moisture back into the air. Just like benefiting from the use of dehumidification in the summer months, you can also reap the benefits of using humidifiers in the winter months. Humidifiers place moisture back into the air and this can have a very positive effect on certain people.
Let’s take a look at some benefits of using a humidifier:
- Flu Precautions: Researchers have found that using humidifiers can greatly reduce the chances of catching the flu. The study found that humidity levels above 40% caused the virus to be far less likely of causing infection.
- Less Snoring in the House: Using a humidifier to add moisture to the air in your home can improve snoring. It does this by lubricating the airway and making snoring less likely to occur.
- Loosens Congested Sinuses and Lungs: A humidifier could greatly improve the breathing of a person suffering from congestion. If that same person has a persistent cough as well, the added humidity could make the cough more productive, thereby allowing all the collected phlegm to escape.
- Benefits for House Plants and Furniture: If your home is more like a greenhouse, or you have lots of plants indoors, you can make them flourish by increasing the amount of humidity in the air. Humidifiers can also benefit your wooden furniture and hardwood flooring by not allowing them dry out and split or crack. This benefit also holds true for wall coverings. Humidifiers increase the longevity of wallpaper and other textured type wall coverings.
So you can also see the benefits of adding humidity to your home’s indoor air quality. And as always you can contact us at Paramount Air any time should you have any further questions on the use of home humidifiers.
