Air humidification - why do we need it?
Dry air can lead to moisture evaporation fr om the skin and worsen respiratory symptoms. Adding moisture to the air with a humidifier can counteract these problems.
Some people experience respiratory symptoms in the summer months when the weather is hot and the air contains more allergens. Fans circulate dry air around the room, and air conditioners remove moisture fr om the air. A humidifier may be useful during this period of time.
However, people often use a humidifier during the cold months when cold air dries the lungs, nose and lips. In addition, some types of central heating can dry the air in the room.
A few advantages of having a humidifier:
- Prevention of influenza. The authors of one study noted that humidifiers can reduce the risk of influenza infection. After adding the influenza virus to the air with a cough simulation, the researchers found that moisture levels above 40 percent quickly inactivate the virus particles, which significantly reduces the likelihood of their infection.
- Reducing snoring (how do you like that?). Increasing the amount of moisture in the air can also reduce the snoring phenomenon. If the air is dry, the person’s airway is less likely to be sufficiently lubricated, which can aggravate snoring.
- Keeping skin and hair moisturized. Some people notice that their skin, lips and hair become dry and brittle in winter. Many types of heaters "shake" hot, dry air, which can make skin dry, itchy, or flaky. Cold air outside can also dry the skin. Using a moisturizer to add moisture to the indoor air can help reduce the likelihood of dry, cracked skin.
- Reducing allergies and asthma symptoms. Studies show that moisturizers can reduce asthma symptoms. Proper use of a moisturizer can also be a good way to reduce the symptoms of allergies and asthma. People with dry sinuses or airways that are prone to allergic reactions may find that a moisturizer eases their problems.
The authors of a study at the International Archives of Occupational and Environmental Health found that teachers exposed to too high or too low levels of moisture in their classes had an increased risk of developing symptoms like asthma. However, this increased risk was small.
What are humidifiers?
While most humidifiers have the same basic function, there are several types of adding moisture to the air:
- Steam evaporators: they use electricity to create steam that cools before it leaves the device. However, there is a risk of skin burns, and people should avoid using steam vaporizers in the presence of children.
- Ultrasonic humidifiers: instead of electricity, these devices use vibrations to evaporate water.
- Evaporators: they produce moisture by blowing air past evaporating water.
- Impeller humidifiers: as a rule, they are convenient for children and use water wheels to evaporate water, rather than heat.
- Central humidifiers: a person connects one of these units to a central air conditioner in the house, office, (room) to add moisture to the whole space.
In this case, we are ready to recommend you the product of our partner - Dyson AM10.
The patented technology Ultraviolet Cleanse - kills 99.9% of the most common types of bacteria. Every drop of water from a Dyson humidifier container is exposed to ultraviolet radiation. Water enters the feed chamber wh ere it is exposed to UV radiation. Before the water turns into a purified water haze, it enters the piezoelectric chamber, wh ere it is treated with UV radiation a second time. UV disinfection water undergoes 3 minutes.
Humidification of the air in the entire room occurs uniformly in all directions, quickly and silently humidifying the air in the entire room thanks to the Air Multiplier ™ technology, which distributes purified water. This technology is a fanless fan. Air enters through the holes in the base of the humidifier and passes through an intelligent temperature and humidity controller. The controller sets the humidifier settings based on the level of temperature and humidity in a particular room. Then the water mist is released through one channel, while the air is accelerated by another channel. Thus, the ambient air is drawn into the flow and creates a powerful air stream, distributing humidified air, 99.9% purified from bacteria, evenly throughout the room. The device can be used in the winter for uniform humidification of the room, as well as in the summer in fan mode, giving a pleasant coolness. Due to the absence of blades, the Dyson fan is a safe and very quiet device.
The device can operate up to 18 hours in continuous mode without topping up water in the tank and has an automatic shutdown timer. It is the only Quiet Mark humidifier in the world and has been designed to take into account acoustic performance for low noise without sacrificing functionality.
The humidifier Dyson AM10 Humidifier can be used by people prone to allergies. Tests in the Airmid Healthgroup laboratory confirmed that the device complies with asthma & allergy friendly ™ and is suitable for asthmatics and allergies. The device measures the level of humidity and temperature and adjusts the work to create the most favorable and hygienic environment. The remote control is convenient for fine tuning the operation of the device and the level of humidity. For storage on the device, the remote is equipped with a magnet.
