What Is A Humidifier And Why Do I Need One For My Home?

What a Humidifier Does

If you’ve complained about a bad night’s sleep enough times, chances are you’ve been recommended to try out a humidifier. You may resist adding another appliance in your home, but a humidifier might be your answer. If you still find yourself asking what a humidifier does, you’ve come to the right place. From preventing airborne illnesses to helping your home, humidifiers can have a wide range of benefits! 

Humidifiers work to put moisture back into your home’s air in order to increase the humidity. This is especially important in the warm months when many homes are running air conditioning constantly. Air conditioners remove moisture from the air. This can lead to dry skin, chapped lips, and allow for more allergens to live in the air.

Preventing influenza

Studies have shown that air with humidity levels above 40 percent contain a rapidly reduced number of virus particles compared to a less humid space. Keep your home as clean and healthy as possible by adding a humidifier to clear out harmful particles.

Reducing snoring

Increasing the amount of moisture in the air can also reduce snoring. Dry air can cause a person’s airways to be less lubricated which can make snoring worse. Adding more humidity may ease with the flow of breathing while sleeping.

Moisture from a humidifier can be helpful in any area of your home. Many plants thrive in a more humid climate, and the humidity may also help increase the life of wood floors and furniture.

Tip: Try using a humidifier in the cold months before cranking up your thermostat. Humid air can also feel warmer than dry air!

If you’re looking for the solution to your snoring, or interested in the effects humidifiers can have on your home, definitely try one out and see if it helps!
