5 Benefits of Using a Humidifier in Winter 2021

Monday, 21 December 2020  |  Sean

Colder air makes the air dry, and dry air can cause a wide range of issues including an increase in allergies, dying house plants, and dehydration, and it can even mean that viruses spread faster in the air. Humidifiers are a must have for winter, designed to put more humidity in the air, which will improve your health and wellbeing, and even help to prevent mould developing in your health. This guide explains the pros and cons of humidifiers, why you should get one, and explains the best humidifiers to buy this winter.

The Benefits of Using a Humidifier

This guide is a go-to guide for when it comes to buying your humidifier. It explains:

What Are Humidifiers?

Humidifiers have one simple job: to add more humidity (or moisture) into the air. They come in all shapes and sizes; some are for offices, others for house bedrooms or living rooms, others fit into your aircon unit and others stand on their own running either on their own or via a plug socket.

Why Is Dry Air Bad For Me?

Dry air can be particularly bad for those who suffer from respiratory problems, making asthma worse, causing bronchitis and dehydration, and it can even mean that viruses spread faster. Dry air is one of the reasons why viruses tend to be more prevalent during winter.

The other problem is what dry air can do to your house. Dry air can make your house plants die, it can make mould grow faster and it can make your household a dry and cold place. The solution isn't to turn your heating on, but to try and get more humidity and moisture into the air.

Our 5 Reasons Why Using a Humidifer Can Improve Your Winter

  1. Reduce Infections and Viruses
    1. Viruses and bacteria travel more effectively in dry air. A humidifer can keep flus, colds and more at bay.
  2. Improve Skin Health and Prevent Dry Skin
    1. Dry air is the cause of dry skin, not cold air. Keep the air moist and your skin will get the moisture it needs to stay healthy.
  3. Increase Sleep Quality
    1. Sinuses don't react well to dry air, which can cause snoring while you sleep. A humidifier can help you to Sleep Better.
  4. Make your Houseplants Happy
    1. Your plants need water all year round and during summer they benefit from humid air. Winter isn't the case, which is why you might be struggling to keep your plants thriving through the cold. A humidifier can quickly solve this problem.
  5. Relief Allergies
    1. We've already mentioned that dry air is bad for your sinuses. Dry air is harsh on the throat and nasal passages, which can be prevented by ensuring that the air that you are breathing is full of moisture.
