Winter is here! With colder temperatures comes drier air. Dry air can negatively affect your health in several ways, causing:
• Dry skin
• Bloody noses
• Dry eyes and lips
• Irritation in the throat
Using a humidifier, which adds moisture back into the air, can counteract these issues; in addition, a humidifier can decrease snoring and even reduce the chance of getting the flu (good news if you have diabetes!). An added bonus of moister air: your houseplants will be healthier, and your wood furniture will be less likely to crack and split.
The URPOWER MH501 5L Ultrasonic Cool Mist humidifier is an excellent choice, especially if space is at a premium. It features three power settings (low, middle and high) that will provide between 14 and 17 hours of working time. While you’re sleeping, the humidifier automatically selects the middle mist output, and all indicator lights and sounds are turned off, so your sleep isn’t disturbed. The URPOWER Ultrasonic Cool Mist humidifier automatically shuts off when there is no water left. Cool mist ultrasonic humidifiers use ultrasonic vibration technology that releases a cool mist into your room; they also tend to use less electricity than warm mist humidifiers. This URPOWER humidifier uses a plastic filter disk that helps to clean the air and buffer noise, as well. Sleep better and stay healthier this winter with the URPOWER MH501 5L Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier.
