As we enter summer, the air in many areas of North America is becoming drier, and no matter how much moisturizer you’re slathering on, your skin is drying out too! Although they may cool your space, traditional air conditioners dry out your room and your skin as they suck the humidity from the air. Did you know low humidity can cause several health problems? As if the heat wasn’t enough, you need humidity along with your cool air. We’ve broken down the top three health problems your traditional air conditioner could be causing.
Problem 1: Dry air and disease prevention
The upper part of your respiratory system, including your throat and nose, is lined with moist membranes. These membranes serve to capture dirt, dust, viruses, and bacteria before they reach your lungs. When these membranes lose too much moisture to dry air, their ability to capture potentially dangerous particles becomes compromised. Proper humidity levels help keep these membranes fully functioning. When you use a Briza air cooler in your home, you can maintain the moisture in your home as well as cool it down, reducing your chances of getting sick.
Problem 2: Dry air isn’t good for your nose
For some, dry air can cause another unpleasant symptom: itchy, uncomfortable nasal passages. Since the majority of breathing is done through the nose, low humidity levels can cause the inside of the nose to become dry and irritated. This is not only painful, but can cause nosebleeds! By using your Briza air cooler, you can keep the nasal passages healthy and comfortable while still cooling down your space.
Problem 3: Low humidity hurts your skin
This one is a no-brainer: your skin is over 50% water, and when the air in your environment lacks humidity, your skin starts to dry out. This can cause itching, flaking, and tightness around the joints. It can even cause painful cracking of the skin and chapped lips. Overly dry air can also cause flare-ups of existing skin problems, like eczema and acne. Using your Briza air cooler can help keep your skin feeling great throughout the hot, dry summer.
Don’t make your health suffer! With a Briza air cooler, you can keep your body and your home comfortable without stripping it of moisture.
