5 Benefits of Installing a Humidifier

Many people experience breathing and respiratory problems during the warm months because the air is filled with allergens. To make matters worse, your AC brings in those allergens to your home. A humidifier helps in several ways, including:

  • Reduced Risk of Influenza: Some studies suggest that a humidifier reduces the risk of catching influenza because humidity levels above 40 percent neutralize virus particles.
  • Benefits Coughing: You might not think a cough is beneficial, but it is. When you add moisture to the air, your coughs release phlegm and other germs.
  • Keeps Skin Hydrated: Dry air means dry skin and lips. Adding moisture to the air keeps your skin smooth and hydrated.
  • Reduces Snoring: When you add moisture to the air, you lubricate your airways, which can reduce the amount of snoring during the night.
  • Household Benefits: If you have plants or wood furniture, both can benefit from increased moisture in the air.

Where Should You Install a Humidifier?

When using a humidifier, the placement is crucial. Ideally, you’d put it in the room where you spend the most time, such as the living room. You must also be aware of the height. Many experts advise putting the unit on a table that raises it about two feet off the ground. However, some experts suggest installing the humidifier where you need it most, such as the bedroom. If you’re not sure about humidifier installation, call the experts at Anderson Heating & Cooling for a consultation.

How Big of a Humidifier Do I Need?

The key to sizing a humidifier is to know in which room you’ll install it. The best setup is to install multiple units throughout the house for maximum coverage. However, if you only put in one, size it according to the room. Resist the urge to get the biggest one you can for a small bedroom because you’ll put too much moisture in the air, which can cause mold to form. To find the right size, measure the square footage of the room, and then choose the model accordingly. If you’re unsure, call us and let us size the unit for you.

Benefits of Installing a Humidifier

There is research supporting the fact that raising indoor humidity levels to at least 43% had a dramatic effect on approximately 85% of airborne viruses, rendering them virtually ineffective.

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 are now too heavy to float around in the air. In turn, this helps prevent the spread of many illnesses, including influenza.

Helps Prevent Snoring

By using a humidifier to add moisture to the air, you create a favorable environment that may help soothe the tissues at the back of your throat. Not only will this help you sleep more comfortably, it can also help cut down on your snoring.

Assists in the Prevention of Dry Skin

Running a humidifier can help prevent your skin from drying out. The added moisture in the air may help improve your dry or itchy skin, peeling or chapped lips and dry eye irritation.

May Relieve Allergy Symptoms

Modern humidifiers are a great way to help alleviate the symptoms of allergies. Allergy sufferers tend to feel more comfortable with heightened humidity, as it may help soothe the tissues in the throat and nasal passages.

Prevents Static

Static electricity is often increased in dry winter months. This electricity can be annoying when associated with your laundry or frizzy hair. Properly humidified air has the ability to limit, even prevent most problems that come from static.
