Using a humidifier while you sleep in summer helps relieve these symptoms of dry air, as well as seasonal allergies. Cold haze can counteract pollen and mold when they are at their peak. If you hit a hot steam humidifier, the water inside will be hot. In addition, the steam could burn you if you sleep or sit too close to it.
For this reason, it is never recommended to use one in a child's room or in any room with pets that can touch it. A humidifier can also help reduce snoring and sleep apnea. There are many causes of snoring, but they are often caused by dry air. When the air is dry, a person's respiratory tract is also likely to be dry, which can worsen snoring and irritate the throat.
Using a humidifier will add moisture to the air and help relieve some symptoms. The added humidity will also reduce allergens in your home's air. Dry air often contains allergens, which can also irritate the throat and disturb sleep. If you wake up with a dry mouth, you most likely have low humidity in your home and you should consider investing in a humidifier.
