A humidifier can be a great way to improve your overall health and wellness, especially during the fall months. Here are some important benefits of using a humidifier in your Fayetteville, North Carolina, house this fall:
Replenish Dry Air From Your Heater
When you run your furnace, the air is heated by fire, usually from gas, and sometimes from electricity, oil, or another fuel. This creates very dry air, which can cause you to experience all sorts of issues, such as overly dry or irritated skin and sinuses. A humidifier helps you to offset the dryness of heated air and replenish the moisture in your home to optimal levels.
Reduce the Symptoms of Sinusitis and Allergies
Allergens thrive in dry air. The dry air can lead to scratchy, irritated sinuses. A humidifier can help restore the natural moisture in your sinuses. This will help to reduce the irritation, congestion, and inflammation of the nasal mucosa tissues, which will bring allergy relief and encourage natural drainage.
Help with Snoring
Another issue that can be caused by dry sinuses is snoring. Many people develop snoring due to sinusitis from dry air. Keep the humidity levels between 30 and 50 percent to ensure everyone gets a good night’s sleep.
Protect Your Home
Dry air can cause a lot of damage to the wood in your home, and it can even result in structural damage to your house due to cracking and warping. This can raise utility bills, allow for infestation by pests, cause water leaks, and more. Humidifying your air will help keep your wood properly hydrated.
