Top 5 Reasons To Use A Humidifier

Humidifiers are brilliant devices with a host associated benefits, some of which you may not be familiar with, but this is where we hope this article can help.

Their main purpose is to increase the moisture in the air within a certain room or enclosed space. It is this increase in moisture which can then add an extra level of comfort to people's lives. A dry room can be the cause of dry skin, sore eyes and irritated nasal passages. Dryness can aggravate respiratory issues, exaggerate symptoms of the common cold and provide an easier environment for germs and other viruses to spread. Increasing moisture can effectively tackle these problems, whilst providing a calm and relaxing environment. 

Modern humidifiers can alleviate symptoms of allergies. Allergy sufferers tend to feel more comfortable with heightened humidity levels, as it may help to soothe the tissue in the throat and nasal passages.

Dry conditions may pull moisture out of the skin leaving it dry. Our bodies rely on the correct amount of water to function properly. Running a humidifier can help prevent skin drying out. The added moisture may help to improve dry, irritable skin, peeling or chapped lips and dry eye irritation.

Studies have shown that raising the humidity levels within a room or in a home can help prevent the spread of viruses. Moisture has the ability to prevent the movement of germs, as they combine with this moisture and simply drop. This happens because the airborne particles become too heavy to float around in the air. In turn, this helps prevent the spread of many illnesses, including influenza. 

Added moisture in the air, which can soothe tissue at the back of the throat, can help you to sleep more comfortably and can also reduce the amount of snoring. Snoring itself can often result in throat irritation, therefore a humidifier may be one preventative measure to solve the issue.

Dry air can cause a person to have a dry, unproductive cough. Adding humidity into the air can get more moisture into the airways, which can make a cough more productive. A productive cough can help to release trapped or sticky phlegm.
