Humidifiers.com is a leading online store in the indoor air quality industry, specializing in fulfilling all humidification needs. Humidity is constantly fluctuating with the outdoor temperature changes, with these changes comes drastic health and home effects that need to be addressed. Because of these effects it is important to be aware of the side effects so one can properly protect their family and home.
As cold temperature months start to roll in, homeowners will find it increasingly difficult to maintain a comfortable relative humidity of 35%-50%. As the outdoor temperature declines, the level of humidity also decreases causing numerous health side effects such as respiratory infections, nosebleeds, frequent colds, symptoms for allergies and asthma as well as harm to wood floors and furniture.
Why is sickness more prevalent in cold, dry weather? Dry air causes the body's natural barriers (mucous membranes) to dry out, making them more susceptible to viruses and bacteria. Dry air also makes people's skin and respiratory passages feel dry which can aggravate allergies and asthma symptoms.
To prevent or remedy this issue, it is necessary to insert humidity back into the home. An easy way to do this is with a humidifier, whole house or portable. A home humidifier adds moisture to the air and helps alleviate these health issues, thus creating a much more comfortable living environment.
