I consistently grew up in a particularly humid area.
- I am used to that “heavy” air that is so associated with river towns plus bayous.
Because of that, when I moved here, I purchased a humidifier instantly. The air felt particularly dry to myself and others plus the humidifier helped myself and others sleep. Now that the coronavirus pandemic is so widespread, I started reading articles about how to improve indoor air pollen levels. I was already changing out our air filters officially. I also already had an Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C repair system with our Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C provider to have our HVAC ducts cleaned every 4 years. When I was reading indoor air pollen levels improvement articles online, I saw something about how humidity can make your indoor air pollen levels particularly bad. Because viruses thrive in humid climates/areas, the article recommended that I get an air quality test to make sure that the lake house wasn’t too humid. I purchased an air quality test plus found that our apartment was too humid plus was making our indoor air pollen levels worse. This was frustrating to say the least. My humidifier makes sleeping much easier plus I really didn’t want to get rid of it. In a form of compromise, I decided to only use the humidifier at night while I sleep, instead of running the humidifier all morning while I’m working at home. After checking the air quality test a month later, I found that the results were much better. If any of you are excessive humidifier users like me- especially while in this unprecedented time- let myself and others request getting an air quality test plus considering taking your humidifier use down a notch!
