Humidifiers are Necessary for a Healthier Environment at Home

Humidifiers contribute to better quality of indoor air, so the environment at home is much healthier. It is all the more beneficial in winter when the air is cold and dry, and tends to cause discomfort.

Here are some of the reasons to get humidifiers during winter:

Reduce risk of infections: Viruses and bacteria can’t travel as well in moist air. A humidifier could mean the difference between getting the flu this winter and remaining healthy.

Comfortable sinuses: You know that dry, tight feeling you get in your nose in the winter? Even if you don’t have a cold, winter air can dry out your sinuses, lowering your resistance to bacteria and viruses. Sleep with a humidifier and wake up with a more comfortable nasal passage. Moreover, if you do end up with a cold or sinus infection, keeping the nasal passage and throat moist (thanks to a humidifier) helps you heal faster.

Softer skin: Cold, dry air saps moisture from your skin, which causes all kinds of problems, including dryness, dullness, flaking, and accelerated aging. A humidifier can prevents such damaging effects, and help to maintain that glowing, vibrant look for holiday parties and gatherings.

Protect wood furnishings: Dry air can damage wood furniture, as well as moldings and doors, causing them to split and crack. A humidifier can help preserve the integrity of the wood, maintaining your pieces for years to come.

Decreased heating bills: Heating bills can go through the roof during winter as the temperature drops rapidly. But moist air is slightly warmer than dry air, so using a humidifier in your home induces a warm and cozy feel. Thus it reduces heating bills as well!

Improved sleep: Snoring is more common if your sinuses and throats are dry, so a humidifier can help to deal with this issue. A moist environment also tends to feel warmer and more comfortable, which can encourage a good night’s sleep.

Healthier houseplants: Plants work to pull out toxins from the air, but they can suffer in dry, winter air. Those with a green thumb will notice that the soil is dryer than usual, while the leaves are droopy and sick!

A humidifier can help keep your houseplants healthy, which indirectly contributes to your health as well.

There are different kinds of humidifiers available in the market, so scout your options, weigh pros and cons, and then make up your mind about which one to buy!

"Nick was on time and incredibly polite. He must have done good work - I immediately noticed my vents working better! Kept my living space clean as he worked. Would use 212 HVAC again."

"My HVAC broke right before family was coming to stay with us during a heatwave. 212 was able to come out and fix the issue super quick and get our AC running again before my family arrived. They are very professional and knowledgeable and I would highly recommend them for HVAC work."

"For the second time in six months I have used 212 HVAC and both times I was impressed by their courtesy, attention to detail and overall responsiveness. I am planning on using them again and would recommend anyone in the neighborhood to do so as well."
