Humidifiers are beneficial all year round! They are not only useful in the winter, but also in the summer. While humidity can make the air feel heavy and hot, proper regulation of relative humidity in your home or office can keep you and your family comfortable and healthy in the summer months.
Air Conditioning Can Be Damaging
With the summer heatwaves kicking in, maintaining air quality can be difficult. You want to be comfortable indoors but leaving the air conditioner on makes the air stale and dry. Air conditioners remove moisture from the air and lower indoor air quality, making your time indoors uncomfortable without you realizing why.
Air conditioners and heat pumps work to cool indoor spaces by pulling the heat out and expelling it outside. Moisture in the air is also extracted as the air passes over an evaporator coil and the moisture exits your home via a condensate drain.
When the air conditioner is running constantly, the air inside may be cooler but can make dry eyes, dry sinuses, and dry skin a problem for all members of the family. Those problems could then lead to increased allergy and asthma symptoms, increased nosebleeds, lack of restful sleep, irritated skin, or could cause you and your family to get sick.
Not only does the dry air from air conditioning pose a problem for you and your family, but it can also cause the paint to chip and furniture, doorways, and wooden floors to warp and crack. Investing in a humidifier is an investment for your whole home. When the humidity in your home is too high or too low, anything that is made out of wood is at risk of breaking. By using a humidifier you will end up saving money in the long run by preserving your home and furniture.
Allergies In The Summer
Allergies are still in full swing during the summer. Pollen, dust, and mold are everywhere. In July, mold counts will begin to increase and make you more susceptible to allergy symptoms indoors. You and your family may be spending more time outside and exposing yourself to other allergens like pollen and dust, so you should be able to rest in your home without fear of allergy symptoms. Dry air in your home or office caused by air conditioning can make your allergy symptoms worse. Humidifiers help keep your nasal passage moisturized which alleviates discomfort you may feel from allergies.
