Did you know a whole-home humidifier could improve your hair and skin? It’s true! It could even help your nose and eyes while keeping your energy bills in check. Read on to learn three benefits of installing a humidifier in your Greenville, SC home or office.
Relieve Physical Consequences of Dry Indoor Air
Long-term exposure to dry air can lead to a variety of physical discomforts, including:
- Dry scalp
- Sore throats
- Dry hair
- Chapped lips
- Dry skin
- Dry nasal cavities
You may know your air is too dry if you routinely experience nasal congestion or see blood when you blow your nose. There are other potential causes of dry scalp, hair and skin, but improving the humidity inside your home can help significantly.
Get Sick Less Often
Research into the spread of influenza and other seasonal illnesses has shown that viruses and bacteria spread easier in dry air. During the winter, the drier air inside our homes and workplaces could explain why colds and the flu spread so quickly. You can combat that and perhaps spare yourself a round of illness by investing in a whole-home humidification system.
Protect Houseplants and Wood Furniture
Dry air can also have a negative impact on your home. If you have wood floors, they’re more prone to splitting, cracking, and shrinking if the air is too dry. Your houseplants may dry out quickly or may not grow as expected. Even your furniture may seem to wear out faster if the wood and other materials are too dry over time.
A humidifier may also help warm your home in the winter while improving indoor air quality, so now is the perfect time to consider improving humidity levels. To discuss the benefits of adding humidifiers to your property, contact the experts at Preferred Choice Heating and Air.
