Winter is quickly approaching! With that comes even more time indoors. With temperatures dropping and the windows closed for months to come, the presence of dry air will be at an all time high. Other than the annoyance of dry skin and cracked lips, dry air can cause numerous health issues. According to the Cleveland Clinic, “Breathing dry air can cause respiratory ailments such as asthma, bronchitis, sinusitis and nosebleeds.” You can significantly reduce the chances of these ailments and more by using a Winix Ultrasonic Humidifier.
If you’re one of the 50 million Americans that are affected by allergies, you’ll be relieved to know that humidifiers have been proven to offer relief. The soothing mist released by a humidifier works to hydrate not only the air around you, but also your nose and throat. The moisture in the air results in the thinning of mucus, which prevents inflammation of the nasal passageways and greatly reduces the risk of an allergy flare up. The absence of humidity in your air also causes mucus to harden, making it less likely to be expelled from your body. With humidifiers aiding in the thinning of mucus, they act as an added benefit when battling a cold or the flu. Moist air acts as a lubricant for your airways, alleviating your stuffy nose and expediting your healing process.
If you’re one of the lucky ones that aren’t prone to illness, you’re more than likely still prone to dry skin. To maintain your supple skin, you’ll need to keep moisture in. Once air turns dry and cold, your skin is less likely to hold onto moisture. Humidifiers restore moisture to the air around you, therefore restoring moisture to your skin. Dry, cracked skin is painful but can be avoided and maintaining a healthy humidity level in your home is one of the most proactive steps you can take.
Humidifiers don’t just help our families when it comes to dry air. They help our four-legged fury friends and plants as well. Dry air can be equally as uncomfortable to our fury family members. This winter season can cause swollen paws, itchy ears and skin, sneezing and even fur loss. Plants love moisture just as much as we do, as they thrive in environments that boast humidity. These problems for both our pets and plants are combated when moisture is present in the air. Winix goes one step further in the protection of you and your fury family with the automatic shutoff feature. Every model carries this security measure to ensure that you and your fur family remain safe.
Using a humidifier has a wide array of benefits for you and your family’s health. Winix Ultrasonic Humidifiers are the solution to your dry air problems and improve the quality of air you breathe all season long.
