The Top 3 Advantages of Using a Humidifier, Miami, Ohio

Your air conditioning is responsible for keeping your living space at a comfortable temperature, as well as preventing moisture levels from getting too high. However, in some cases, your indoor air might need more humidity. If you don’t know why moisture is a necessary aspect of indoor air, consider the following three advantages of using a humidifier.

3 Benefits of Running a Humidifier

1. Lessen Allergy Symptoms

People with allergies tend to feel worse when the air is dry and cold. This causes dryness in the nasal cavity and respiratory system — leading to coughing, sneezing, and itchy or watery eyes. People with asthma may also find it harder to breathe when there isn’t enough moisture in the air. By using a humidifier alongside your air conditioning, you can control airborne moisture levels to break up mucus in the nose and chest and alleviate dryness in the throat and sinuses.

2. Soothe Sensitive Skin

air conditioningIn addition to internal symptoms, dry air can also harm your skin. If you have sensitive skin, a lack of humidity will increase dryness, making you feel itchy, and possibly leading to a rash. While lotion can help, you can combat dry skin by running a humidifier. The added moisture will make your skin hydrated, preventing dullness, dandruff, and rashes 

3. Protect Your Belongings

In addition to your home’s residents, low humidity levels can also affect material items. Dry air can dehydrate houseplants, making it harder for you to keep that windowsill herb garden alive. A lack of humidity may also cause wood to contract, leading to cracks in wood furniture, doors, and even musical instruments.
