If the air in your area is generally very dry, it can cause issues.
- These issues can be respiratory and sinus related.
Generally, excessively dry air does not lend itself very well to comfort, whether outside or within your own home. It is ultimately best to invest in a whole home air humidifier if you find yourself in an excessively dry climate. Whole home air humidifiers can alleviate all sorts of symptoms of excessively dry air. Of course, you won’t have excessively dry skin if you are in an environment that has proper humidity levels. Furthermore, you will probably suffer from less nosebleeds and respiratory issues. If you have a head cold, for example, moist air is definitely more beneficial than excessively dry air when it comes to helping you breathe. I’ve also personally found that a whole home humidifier helps me feel warmer in the winter when I use it in conjunction with my heating system. I find that I could turn down the temperature a little lower because the moisture in the air makes me feel warmer at a lower temperature than if the air was dry. Humidifiers can even protect against respiratory infections, which can be exacerbated by excessively dry air. There are so many reasons to invest in a whole home air humidifier. Perhaps you should speak with a representative from your local heating and air conditioning company if you live in a dry climate, to see if they have any humidifiers available to you!
