Benefits of having Humidifiers at home

Dry air is becoming a common phenomenon across the world; hence the urge to find the perfect humidifier for your room is becoming an ultimate necessity. But what makes the dry air so dangerous? Well, the dry air is very corrosive to the respiratory tract of human beings and also harms your body in ways you might have never thought. Moreover, the dry air also damages the skin and hair.

As the winter season approaches, the humidity in the air starts bidding farewell and the weather starts cooling down. And as the weather becomes severely cold outside, we turn on our furnaces or room heaters and whatever humidity remains in the atmosphere of the room leaves the room and the air becomes completely dry.

Most people think that Sahara desert is the driest place in the world with absolutely no trace of water vapour in its atmosphere but what you do not know is that an average heated room is two times drier than the Sahara desert itself. Actually, the humidity of an averagely heated room becomes half of what is deemed as comfortable.

The throat, as well as the nasal linings, acts as the best barriers against the bacteria or viruses entering your body when they are dry. But when they get dry the protective lining falters in its functions and brings upon you a lot of different bacterial or viral diseases. The dry winter season is responsible for all the infections in the upper respiratory system like the common cold, tonsillitis, laryngitis, sinus problems, bronchitis and sore throats.

As stated before, the dry air is also harmful when it comes to your skin and hair. The skin looks fresh, healthier and provides maximum protection against the germs when it is moist. Your hair too is better looking and manageable when there is enough moisture in the air but as the air gets dry, it starts looking frizzed and loses its usual grace.

But fortunately, there are efficient humidifiers available in the market that can be bought at very low cost which will be your greatest weapon in the arsenal against the dry air. Though there are basically two types of humidifiers available in the market, the hot and cold or ultrasonic humidifiers. But it is better to choose the former since it is better for your health in many ways.

The warm humidifiers humidify the air by dispersing moisture into the air through the process of forced evaporation. The water thus enters the air in the form of molecules; hence, any contaminants such as bacteria, viruses, moulds or toxic chemicals are left in the reservoir. Therefore, you can see that they are completely risk-free and you can use them without any worries.

What are the benefits of the humidifiers? Well, scroll down to find out:

• The humidifiers help in reducing the risk of respiratory infections in the dry weather
• Help in keeping skin and hair soft as well as vibrant
• Make the sinuses comfortable
• Keep the house plants healthy
• Protect the wooden furniture

The humidifiers help to keep you safe in a myriad of ways. So, bring home a warm humidifier and fill your winters with warmth as well as good health. The pleasant weather will allow you to enjoy your cup of coffee in the midst of cool weather outside.
