Can a Humidifier Help With Spring Allergies?

Spring brings sunshine and new life, but if you’re not careful, the season can also encourage allergy attacks. Even indoors, airborne contaminants can cause nonstop sneezing, sniffling, and congestion. Find out how a whole-home humidifier can relieve spring allergies in your Sarasota, Florida, home.

Relieve Sinus Inflammation

Whether you suffer a little or a lot, spring allergies can wreak havoc on your sinuses. If dry winter air still lingers in your home, low humidity levels can further dry out your breathing passages, making coughing and blowing your nose downright painful.

A whole-home humidifier works with your home’s existing HVAC system to add humidity back into your indoor air. While added moisture relieves dry sinuses, take care not to create an overly humid indoor environment. Health experts typically recommend keeping the humidity level at 50 percent or below to avoid aggravating asthma and allergies.

Eliminate Congestion

For many people, the changing of the seasons often means greater susceptibility to congestion. Whether you’re allergic to trees, flowers, or dust, a whole-home humidifier can help. If you increase the humidity level throughout your home, you’ll help eliminate congestion, calm irritated throats, and ease lingering coughs. By simply creating a more comfortable environment, you may even be able to feel better with lower doses of medication or without the help of other remedies.

Soothe Sensitive Skin

Skin allergies can cause inflammation and irritation at any time of year, and spring is no exception. While some allergies result from coming into contact with certain substances, others are aggravated by environmental conditions. If you suffer from eczema or dermatitis, for instance, dry air can lead to seriously sensitive skin. Use a whole-home humidifier to add moisture to the air and bring indoor humidity to a level that’s comfortable for your skin as well as sustainable all season long.
