“Using a humidifier in the summer seems a bit ridiculous. After all, why would you want to be humid during the hottest season? Summer doesn’t always mean it’s time for fun activities and hitting the pool. Summer is the prime season for allergies. With all the bugs and pollen spreading throughout the air, it’s not uncommon to notice more runny noses than usual. On top of that, the constant use of an air conditioner can make the air dry. Dry air can cause irritation if allergy symptoms are already present, and can even lead to infection in some cases.
What role would a whole house humidifier play in fixing any of this? The uses of a humidifier go beyond just making areas in your home humid.
It Can Remedy Allergies
- Hydrating during allergy season is helpful in fighting the symptoms.
- Having cool mist absorbed by your body will help energize it and clear up congestion in the nose and throat.
It’s Healthy for Your Skin
- Whether or not you’re sick, your body needs moisture.
- Using a humidifier to moisturize is great for your skin, and can help clean your pores as well.”

Believe it or not, using a humidifier along with an air conditioning can actually help make your rooms cooler. This, in turn, also allows you to keep your ac’s thermostat at a higher temperature resulting in less energy usage. Air conditioners by themselves typically cause lower than normal humidity levels which may lead to dry and cracking skin. It’s important to remember that humidity is just water in the air and doesn’t always result in mugginess.
If you want the humidity levels throughout your home to be at the perfect level in every room, a whole house humidifier is necessary.
