I’ve suffered with mild seasonal allergies, for most of my life. Ever since I was six, I have had sneezing, sniffling, and coughing symptoms. The spring and winter seasons are always the worst for me. During the spring, all of the trees and plants are blooming. I find myself constantly suffering from headaches or sinus pains. The winter is awful, because of the lack of moisture in the air. The dust bothers me a lot, during the winter season. When my allergies started to get really bad, I talked with the doctor about options to help. My doctor suggested that we buy a humidifier for our house. The humidifier helps by adding moisture to the indoor air. The moisture helps the indoor air quality, by making it easier to breathe. My insurance carrier even paid for the humidifier, because it was deemed to be necessary for my allergies. I feel a lot better and so does my family. Even my houseplants seem more lively and green, since we started using the humidifier. My skin is softer and my hands don’t crack like they once did. One thing we didn’t expect, was our electric bills to lower from using the humidifier. Since we added the humidifier, we assumed our electric bill would increase. After all, that’s another machine drawing power from the source. That hasn’t been the case at all. In fact, it seems like our HVAC unit is running less frequently, from the use of the humidifier. With all of these benefits, I wish we had added this humidifier a long time ago.
