In an era of going green and saving money, people are turning to unexpected sources for natural remedies and ways to conserve. Humidifiers, unexpectedly, serve both purposes by offering relief from dry air, making the air feel warmer, and relieving symptoms of colds and the flu through proper humidification. As a result of this AchooAllergy.com is pleased to announce its all new humidifiers offering.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 13, 2009 -- Homeowners who crank up the heat during cold weather may be simultaneously creating problems for both inhabitants and the home itself by making indoor air too dry. Using a humidifier relieves the problems associated with too-dry air, helps cut down on energy costs, and offers natural treatment for winter-time sicknesses. However, humidifiers can actually pollute the air, so using one that safeguards against possible risks is important.
Forced heating systems, the kind used in most homes, lower the home's relative humidity. Ideal humidity levels fall between about 30 and 50 percent. Too dry air can cause dry skin, eczema, itchy throats and eyes, irritated sinuses, and difficulty breathing. Furthermore, air that's too dry can create static electricity and lead to peeling wallpaper and cracked paint and furniture.
Humidifiers reverse the damage caused by over-dry air by infusing the air with moisture. Proper humidity also makes the air feel warmer, allowing homeowners to set their thermostats a little lower. Lowering the thermostat by one degree can save 1 to 3 percent on energy costs. Furthermore, humidifiers relieve the discomfort caused by colds and the flu by soothing irritated nasal passages, dry throats and eyes, and easing coughs. Given the FDA's recommendation against those under two receiving cough medication, humidifiers' benefits are especially relevant to those with young children.
Using humidifiers, while alleviating the dangers of dry air, must be used with care. Humidity levels should be monitored in order to ensure that the air doesn't become too moist, a condition which can lead to various other problems including mold growth. Additionally, humidifiers can actually pollute the air if not used properly. According to the EPA, "ultrasonic and impeller (or 'cool mist') humidifiers can disperse materials, such as microorganisms and minerals, from their water tanks into indoor air."
To guard against mold, minerals, and microorganisms, it's important to use a humidifier that addresses these issues.
