3 Reasons To Use A Humidifier During Flu Season

During the flu season in Yorba Linda, people will go to great lengths to keep the flu away or beat the sickness when it arrives. One thing they may overlook, however, is their indoor air quality. Using a humidifier to regulate the air in your home can have a number of health advantages. It could curb the spread of the flu virus, offer relief from congestion and coughing and even improve the health of your nasal passages. For people in Yorba Linda who are interested in the benefits of an in-home humidifier, the experts at J Martin Indoor Air Quality can help.

1. High Humidity Curbs the Flu

According to a study by the National Academy of Sciences in 2009, flu germs spread more easily and survive better in dry air. Boosting the levels of humidity indoors may therefore make things harder for the virus. Humidity levels between 45% and 50% are thought to be ideal for this purpose.

2. Relieve Coughing and Congestion

One of the causes of persistent coughing and congestion is inflammation in your airways. That inflammation can be caused or exacerbated by dry air inside the home. The professionals at J Martin Indoor Air Quality can conduct a review of your home and suggest a humidifier unit to bring humidity levels up to where you can breathe easier.

3. Throat and Nasal Health Improvements

People breathe better when their airways are properly hydrated. Regulating humidity levels may help to ensure hydration of the nasal passages and throat. When people are exposed to the flu, the resulting coughing and sneezing can lead to damage in these airways. Humid air, however, can help you heal more quickly.

If you’re considering a humidifier to help you fight the flu this season, look no further than J Martin Indoor Air Quality. We can help you choose the unit that’s right for your home and your budget. We have more than 40 years of experience providing Yorba Linda with heating, cooling and air quality services. Call us today to set up a consultation.
