Humidifiers add moisture to the air to ease symptoms caused by the flu or common cold, and are effective for easing the discomfort of a dry throat. Humidifiers are especially useful for dry months of the year caused by seasonal temperatures or HVAC systems. Some humidifiers are small and portable so you can easily carry them from room to room while central humidifiers are larger and build directly into your home’s HVAC unit, adding humidity to the entire house. Adding a balanced amount of humidity to the air is beneficial for health, but too much moisture in a room can encourage the growth of dust mites, mold and harmful bacteria. Some humidifiers are combined with filters and UV bulbs to kill mold and viruses as they pass through the unit. A small device called a hygrometer can determine how much humidity is in the room, which should stay between 30 and 50 percent. While warm humidifiers make the best addition to your CPAP system, cold humidifiers are safe if there are children in the house. It’s important to keep your humidifier clean according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
As part of your CPAP system, a heated humidifier offers relief from dryness and congestion with adjustable humidity levels during therapy, delivering optimal temperature and humidity to the mask.
