Facts About Humidifiers
A humidifier is a device that adds moisture to the air in your home. In addition to helping rein in heating costs in the winter, using a humidifier has many health benefits.
The Benefits of Using a Humidifier:
1. Reduced heating costs in winter:
Moist air feels warmer than dry air at the same temperature. A humidifier adds moisture to the air in your home, reducing the need to turn up the heat when outside temperatures drop.
2. Helps with allergies and asthma:
Adding moisture to the air in your home can help to keep dust levels low, allowing you and your family to breathe easier.
3. Reduces chapped lips, itchy eyes, and dry skin:
A humidifier in the wintertime can make a huge difference for your health and comfort by reducing the effects of dry winter air on your skin and eyes.
4. May improve respiratory health:
In addition to reducing environmental irritants, a humidifier can improve your respiratory health by keeping your sinuses and nasal passages from drying out. This helps prevent colds and sinus infections from occurring, and promotes faster healing if you do become sick.
