The 5 Biggest Benefits of Installing a Home Humidifier
People commonly turn to humidifiers to help them find relief from the damaging effects of dry air. Not only can dry air draw moisture out of your skin, it can also contribute to a number of other health issues, and even damage your furniture and personal belongings.
If you’re considering buying a new humidifier for your Calgary home, check out these five benefits associated with humidification:
1. Alleviate dry skin
If you have chronically dry skin, psoriasis, eczema or even a thyroid disorder, installing a humidifier can help, especially during the winter months. Adding some moisture back into the air can help reduce the severity of dry, itchy skin and chapped lips, and give you some much-needed relief.
2. Stop persistent snoring
Another benefit of adding humidity back into your home’s air is that it can help put an end to persistent snoring. Dry air aggravates the throat and nasal passages and makes snoring worse, which is why a home humidifier can help everyone in your home get a better night’s sleep.
3. Ease asthma and allergy symptoms
The same soothing relief that a humidifier provides to your skin can help soothe allergy symptoms and provide relief to anyone suffering from asthma. Dry air irritates your nasal cavities, aggravates allergy and asthma symptoms, and increases mucus production. Find relief with the right balance of moisture inside your home.
4. Preserve your home’s appearance
Not only are humidifiers good for your health, but they’re good for your home’s health as well. Adding moisture back into the air can help preserve wood flooring by preventing cracking. It can also eradicate cracking in painted surfaces and stop wallpaper from peeling.
5. Lower your heating bills
Dry air is much colder than moist air, so when the air inside your home is dry, you tend to reach for the thermostat more often. Adding humidity to your home’s interior can help you keep your heating bills in check, and make your family and pets more comfortable during the cold winter months.
The best way to humidify your home is to install a self-contained unit that’s capable of providing an adequate level of humidity year round throughout every room in your house. Smaller units designed to humidify a single room are typically less effective and aren’t able to deliver the same results as a larger home humidifier.
