- Scorched Sinuses, itchy Skin.
Did you know your sinus cavities are protected by paper thin and fragile mucous membranes? Mucus keeps them pliable. When dry, they crack allowing germs and sickness a direct channel into the bloodstream. That’s a real problem in winter, when cold bacteria and flu viruses linger longer in the dry air after someone coughs or sneezes or touches a doorknob. Mucus’ job is to wash viruses and other icky invaders found in your nose and sinus into a little opening at the back of your throat, your uvula. That’s where mucus from sinus cavities drains into your stomach allowing acids kill the germs.
- How does your body furnace regulate temperature? Body temperature is controlled by secreting moisture from perspiration, which evaporates, absorbing heat from your skin. The dryer the air, the faster evaporation and quicker your body cools.When it’s cold you feel chilly and turn up the furnace thermostat, drying the air even more causing your body to evaporate moisture and the cooler you feel.Your furnace then kicks up clouds of dust, pollen, and other allergens that can inflame your sinuses and airways. (Learn about air filtering.) For some people with asthma, cold and dry air can lead to a narrowing of breathing passages and trigger an attack.
- What’s the lowest-cost way to lower heating bills? Moist air will help keep your skin, mouth, and nose lubricated, help prevent those nasty static shocks and makes your home warmer allowing you lower heating bills up to 20%. A whole home central humidifier also helps with creaky wooden floors, piano or other wood instruments, leather, furniture, rugs, sinus problems and comfort complaints.
