How to Fix a Dry House
Posted on December 18th, 2018
Believe it or not, a home’s indoor air quality starts to dry up in the wintertime. Whether you’re located in New York or Arizona, dry air tends to be a problem — especially if you typically suffer from sinus-based ailments. If you’re looking to add some moisture back into the air, then here are some great ways to do it:
One of the best ways to add some much-needed moisture is to boil a pot of water on the stove (with supervision, of course). Granted, the pot doesn’t have to be large and over the top — but it should be big enough to make a difference in your air quality.
To get started, you’ll want to fill up the pot halfway and then place it on the stove. Next, turn the heat up just a tad to get the pot boiling. Once it heats up and the boiling is underway, let it boil for no more than a few minutes, maximum. Finally, enjoy your newly moisturized air!
Use a Humidifier
Another great way to defeat dry air is to purchase a humidifier. This timeless gadget is the perfect addition to any home or office space because it will provide relief within seconds — especially for those that suffer from sinus conditions.
Unlike supervising a pot on the stove, this little machine is independent — until it runs out of water, which you’ll have to refill every so often. If you’re looking to go a step further, then adding purified water to this device will do wonders — and you definitely notice the difference in quality when doing so!
