Natural moisturising agent that can relieve dryness
National Heater Shops has a fantastic collection of air humidifiers from trusted manufacturers such as Boneco and Prem-I-Air. If you suffer from allergies, colds or congestion due to the change of seasons, you may still experience discomfort no matter how much you refrain from going outside to avoid aggravating your allergies or persistent cough.
One of the problems causing this may be a lack of moisture in the air — a problem that can be addressed with a humidifier, which is a machine that boosts the moisture content in the air to prevent dryness that can sometimes lead to eye and throat irritation. They are particularly effective for treating a dry nose, throat, skin and lips. Humidified air from the humidifier can also ease the symptoms caused by flu or common cold.
Humidity acts as a natural moisturising agent to relieve dryness. Because of this, humidifiers are often used to relieve sinus congestion, headaches, dry throats, nose irritation, bloody noses, irritated vocal cords, dry coughs and cracked lips. Having well-balanced humidity levels can keep your nasal passages clear of mucus and relieve the discomfort and symptoms of allergies. Clear nostrils help your body get rid of allergens that you are exposed to.
Cold, dry air from winter weather is often the cause of respiratory ailments, but humidified air is warmer by comparison. When air-moisture levels are higher, sweat evaporates more slowly, which leaves people feeling warmer. Having an air humidifier during the cold season may help you feel slightly warmer.
Breathing in dry air can worsen your cough and, in some cases, even cause a dry cough. By adding moisture to the air, a humidifier helps ease night-time cough symptoms. Warm-mist or cool-mist humidifiers may be used, although cool-mist humidifiers are generally thought to be a better choice for children, since warm-mist humidifiers pose a burn risk.
If the air you are breathing is too dry, mucus will not flow properly, preventing your sinuses from draining themselves fully. Congestion may lead to pain and eventually sinusitis. Heating systems may make nasal passages feel overly dry, provoking sinusitis and congestion. Having a humidifier can be very helpful in preventing congestion and sinusitis. Humidified air is generally good for sinus health and assists in alleviating nasal congestion because it provides additional moisture.
Most people do not know that there is an ideal indoor humidity level that you should strive to attain for maximum comfort of around 30 to 50 per cent. Humidifiers help you reach an ideal humidity level and, when used correctly, they may help improve indoor air quality. Ensure humidity levels are monitored closely, use distilled water, change the water in the tank often and clean it every three days or so.
