Sweater weather may bring cool breezes and crisp air, but it also brings dry sinuses, chapped lips, and other irritation symptoms.


Cold air does not hold as much moisture as warm air, which is why your lips, nasal passages, and skin tend to dry out when the temperature drops. Adding water vapour to the air in your home, on the other hand, can help alleviate this seasonal discomfort.


When there is more moisture in the air, symptoms of other health issues that tend to flare up when the air gets colder or dryer, such as dry eye or eczema, can also be improved. Using a humidifier may help—as long as you use it properly and acquire it from a reliable air conditioner repair Edmonton.


Keep in mind that making your home's air too humid can backfire by breeding potentially harmful mould and bacteria. Knowing how and when to use a humidifier correctly can help you achieve the right balance and find relief.


Congestion In The Nose


Low humidity may increase the flu virus's survival and ability to infect people not only outdoors, but also indoors. While a humidifier will not cure a cold or flu, it may make it easier for some people to cough up or blow out bothersome mucus that has accumulated in their airways. That mucus could be caused by a cold, another viral illness, or a bacterial infection. Even in the dead of winter, indoor allergens such as dust, mould, and pet dander can cause allergy flare-ups.


The Nose Bleeds


Blood vessels line the nose, which helps to warm and humidify the air you breathe in. However, dry air or excessive nose-blowing and rubbing can cause the nasal passages to crust, crack, and bleed. A humidifier can protect the nasal passages and help prevent nosebleeds.


Alleviate Symptoms Of Cold

If you get the flu or a cold then sleeping with a humidifier may help you recover faster. It may help lubricate your nasal passages, allowing you to breathe more quickly in addition to loosening congestion. This may also help relieve a sore throat and, in some cases, sinus headaches, as well as restore restful sleep. 


Furthermore, cold and fever symptoms may worsen at night because lying down puts you in a vulnerable position. Cold, dry air, combined with a prone sleeping posture, can affect how mucus builds up in the nasal cavity, and a lack of adequate draining while lying down can cause that mucus buildup and aggravate cold and flu symptoms.


Itchy And Dry Skin


When your skin is dry, it is more prone to cracking and wrinkling. This can be extremely unpleasant. Unfortunately, using lotion and chapstick to rehydrate skin may not be enough when you have dry air in your home. One thing that can help is to keep the air moist enough for your skin to absorb. 


Your skin can become dry, flaky, and itchy when the air is cold and dry. In more severe cases, the skin may crack and begin to bleed. Eczema, a type of skin condition, can worsen when dehydrated air and indoor heaters remove moisture from the skin. A humidifier could provide some relief.


A humidifier, in conjunction with creams, may assist sufferers in retaining skin moisture, reducing scratching, and promoting uninterrupted sleep.

Eye Irritation


Dry eye affects millions of adults in the United States. A dry eye can be caused by a variety of factors, including colder temperatures and wind. Moreover, dry weather, age, contact lens use, and certain medical conditions or nutritional deficiencies can also cause drier eyes. Using a humidifier can help relieve red, burning, scratchy, or dry eyes.


It Can Aid In The Health Of Your Hair And Scalp


Your scalp, like the rest of your skin, may become dry and irritated when there is a lack of moisture in the air. This may itch your scalp and aggravate dandruff. Your hair may also be affected. Your hair requires moisture because it is composed of collagen. When exposed to dry air for an extended period, your hair may become dry and brittle. Acceptable humidity levels may aid in this. Buying a trustworthy humidifier from a reliable HVAC contractor will be the best choice you make this winter.


Helps With Snoring


Humidifiers may aid in the relief of dry airways that cause snoring. Snoring is caused by a constricted airway, which causes a dry mouth and a relaxed throat. Because of the dryness, the respiratory airways overcompensate by producing more mucus, resulting in more constriction and the likelihood of uttering an audible vibration such as snoring.




A humidifier can last for several years if used and maintained properly. Unplug your machine and discard any remaining water in the tank during warmer months or when you know you won't be using it for an extended time. Cleaning and drying the machine as directed, as well as removing and discarding the filter The humidifier should then be returned to its original box and stored in a cool, dry place.
