Spring is definitely here, and for many homeowners in Columbia, Maryland, that means an increase in allergies. This allergy problem is only exacerbated when the air in your home is too dry. If you’re worried that your indoor air quality is at risk, a humidifier may be the solution for which you’ve been searching. Here’s how a humidifier will raise your indoor air quality (IAQ).

How Humidifiers Work

A whole-home humidifier works in conjunction with your HVAC system. As part of the unit, the humidifier supplies water vapor that is then distributed throughout your home. One type of humidifier forces air over water, evaporating the water and then sending it through the duct system and into your home. The other type creates a mist by breaking up water droplets, then distributes it throughout the house. Either way, you’ll have genuine moisture spread through your home.

How a Humidifier Will Improve Your IAQ

So what are the benefits of having moist air? For starters, dry air can be the cause of a host of issues. Without the proper level of humidity, the air in your home will dry out your throat, nose, and eyes, causing irritation that could even lead to illness. It will also increase asthma and other allergy symptoms. Humidifying the air will not only fix this dryness, but also subdue airborne dust and other allergens. Have you ever noticed how your allergies aren’t as bad when it rains? It’s because the moist air keeps dust and spores from circulating. A humidifier will do the same in your home.

It’s important to remember that a humidifier is supposed to help you maintain the right balance of humidity, not create extra humidity. Too much humidity will cause mold growth and become detrimental to your indoor air quality. Just remember, it’s all about balance!
