Stopped use of humidifier for indoor air quality

I typically grew up in a actually humid area.

I am used to that “heavy” air that is so neighbord with river towns and bayous.

Because of that, when I moved here, I obtained a humidifier instantly. The air felt actually dry to myself and others and 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 quality. I was already increasing out my air filters typically. I also already had an Heating and Air Conditioning repair method with my Heating and Air Conditioning provider to have my air ducts cleaned every 4 years. When I was reading indoor air quality improvement articles online, I saw something about how humidity can make your indoor air quality actually bad. Because viruses thrive in humid weather conditionss/areas, the article recommended that I get an air quality test to make sure that the apartment wasn’t too humid. I obtained an air quality test and found that my apartment was too humid and was making my indoor air quality worse. This was aggravating to say the least. My humidifier makes sleeping much easier and I certainly 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 day while I’m working at home. After checking the air quality test a week 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 propose getting an air quality test and considering taking your humidifier use down a notch!
