With the new year come new opportunities to get healthy. More than just exercising and eating well, there are simple changes that can make your home healthier, too. The technicians at Seider Heating, Plumbing & Electrical recommend a Carrier® whole-home humidifier for a number of reasons. Find out how this affordable unit can improve your health and home comfort in more ways than one.
Stop the Spread of Sicknesses
It’s no secret that cold- and flu-causing germs thrive in dry conditions or that airborne viruses can spread like wildfire. But when you bring a humidifier into your home, these pesky microbes don’t stand a chance. The added moisture makes airborne germs too heavy to stay afloat, rendering them inactive. We recommend keeping your indoor humidity levels between 30 and 50 percent to reduce your exposure to illness.
If someone in your home is already sick, humidifiers can help soothe airways, sore throats, runny noses, coughing, and sinus congestion so they feel better faster—all while helping the rest of you stay healthy.
Alleviate Uncomfortable Dryness
Dry skin plagues us all during winter months, but it can be much worse for those who already suffer with conditions, like eczema or dermatitis. Most of us also experience cracked lips and nosebleeds when the air is so dry. Whole-home humidifiers provide constant moisture to alleviate uncomfortable itchiness and soothe skin conditions. And it’s not just seasonal relief—you can expect year-round comfort with a perfectly balanced moisture level.
Catch Some More Zzzs
Sleeping well is the key to being healthy and a whole-home humidifier helps you sleep more soundly. The added moisture soothes your respiratory system to prevent disruptive snoring. And it provides an even higher level of comfort because humidified air feels warmer.
Reduce Allergy and Asthma Symptoms
If you suffer from seasonal or year-round allergies or asthma, a whole-home humidifier can help minimize your symptoms. It’s especially helpful for people with dry sinuses or airways who tend to have chronic runny noses, sore throats, and other side effects. Some individuals have even seen their symptoms practically disappear after introducing humidified air into their homes.
Find out If a Whole-Home Humidifier Is Right for You
As an added bonus, a whole-home humidifier also reduces static electricity. And because humidified air feels warmer, you can turn the temperature down and save without sacrificing comfort.
