Did you know lower humidity improves indoor air quality, but higher humidity is healthier for throat and nasal passages? It’s important to find a balance for your home and family—not too damp or too dry. Using a humidifier can improve your indoor air quality in Lynnwood.
Low Humidity Leads to Low Allergen Production
If you or members or your household suffer from allergies, it’s important to know than many allergens can’t survive in an environment with low humidity. Mold and dust mites thrive in higher temperatures and higher humidity, around 70 to 80 percent.
Higher Humidity Relieves Congestion, Inflammation, and Eczema
On the flip side, low humidity can exaccerbate some allergies because it irritates nasal passageways. Those with asthma also suffer more in dry air. Air with higher moisture relieves these symptoms. Higher humidity levels may also help during the cold and flu season, especially for children who are too young for over-the-counter medicines. A vaporizer or warm-mist humidifier both help with coughing and congestion.
Balance Your Air with a Humidifier
When the air is dry, especially during the winter months, humidiers can help you achieve the best humidity level for you home, and relieve many allergy and nasals issues some of us face.
