Although we love our area of the country, a downside toliving in Phoenix is the extremely dry air. It can take a toll on your body; after all, we are made up of 60 percent water. So, if you introduce your body to an environment that has little to no moisture in the air, you may find it reacting negatively to this change. We want to help you make your indoor environment a little more livable, so here are some of the benefits a humidifier can offer.
Keeps colds and flu at bay
Dry air can have a particularly negative effect when the flu or other airborne illnesses are being spread around. Less humidity in the air means it’s easier for these illnesses to spread from person to person. Additional moisture in the air can help keep youhappy and healthy!
Helps loosen congestion
Dry air can cause mucus to become dry and thick, which can then result in clogged nasal passages. In turn, this may lead to a stuffy nose, sore throat, and sinus pain. Humidifiers canprovide relief by adding moisture, helping break up phlegm in your nose and chest.
Prevents dry skin
Dry air can contribute todry skin. When your skin is dry, it may crack and wrinkle more easily. This can be incredibly uncomfortable. Unfortunately, when you have dry air in your home, using lotion and lip balm may not be enough to rehydrate skin. One way to help is to have acceptable levels of moisture in the air, so your skin can absorb it. A humidifier aids in this process.
