If you have ever lived in a humid climate, excess moisture in the air may seem like a nuisance that makes you uncomfortable. When it comes to the air inside homes in Wheat Ridge and the surrounding areas, proper humidity levels actually make you more comfortable. Before you go out and buy a small humidifier for your living room or bedroom, learn about these eight surprising benefits of our whole-home humidifiers.
1. Happy Houseplants
Even those succulents that you love to grow will love having some extra moisture in the air. Houseplants thrive in properly humidified environments, such as greenhouses. A whole-home humidifier maintains a humidity level that makes your houseplants quite happy, and you may even finally get an abundance of blooms.
2. Less Sneezing
Proper humidity levels inside your home help to reduce airborne irritants that trigger allergies, sneezing, and coughing. You don’t breathe in dust, pollen, and other particles because the moisture traps them. A humidifier also helps to keep your mucous membranes moist so your immune system can fend off any airborne particles.
3. Consistent Humidity Levels
You want to feel comfortable throughout your home, and a consistent humidity level is difficult to maintain with standalone humidifiers that only treat a small area of square footage. The whole-home humidifiers from Coffman & Company can be set to a specific humidity level, and sensors ensure that each room has the right humidity level.
4. Beautiful Woods
The wood furniture and flooring that is found in many Wheat Ridge homes needs moisture to maintain luster and prevent cracking. A whole-home humidifier from Coffman & Company provides just the right amount of moisture in the air that is beneficial for wood flooring and furniture without causing warping. The wood color becomes more vibrant, and you fall in love with your home décor every day.
5. Good Night’s Sleep
Appropriate humidity levels in your home are known to reduce snoring. Having dry mucous membranes is one reason why people snore. Having the right level of moisture keeps the membranes moist so you can finally get a good night’s rest.
6. Better Hair and Nails
Your hair and nails soak up moisture from a whole-home humidifier. Some of the benefits are shine, strength, and thickness. Many people also notice that their hair and nails are less brittle and less prone to breaking when they use whole-home humidifiers.
7. Fewer Illnesses
Maintaining a healthy humidity level inside a home is known to reduce illnesses from bacteria and viruses. These microorganisms do not survive well in environments with certain levels of moisture. If you are concerned with mold growth with a whole-home humidifier, there is no need to worry. The humidity levels that are maintained with a whole-home humidifier are not the same as what you see with standalone models. You will not see condensation on your furniture, walls, or ceilings.
8. Clear Sinuses
Congestion is a common problem in the Wheat Ridge area, and the root cause of this pesky symptom is dry sinuses. When the mucous membranes are lacking moisture, bacteria, pollen, viruses, dust, and other small particles stay in your sinuses and cause inflammation and infections. Healthy humidity levels that are maintained with a whole-home humidifier keep the membranes moist so your immune system can fend off any irritating particles and microorganisms.
