Many people have opposing opinions about humidifier’s effects on vocalization.
I’ll scientifically and unilaterally explain this.
I have 22 categories that influence breathing and vocalization. Let’s try to figure out who is right.(2)
Part 2 is “Humidifier”
The humidifier is a necessity during the winter season. Relying on heaters to stay warm in the winter makes homes very dry, removing moisture from the air. Humidifiers create balance in the air by adding moisture. The purpose of a humidifier is to increase humidity in a room, and there are roughly two kinds of humidifiers.
(1)Heats the water and produces water vapor
(2)Vibrates the water by means of ultrasonic vibration
We used to use (1) before, but (2) is now becoming the mainstream preference because the ultrasonic equipment has become more affordable.
The fluid (including saliva) of the intrinsic larynx, decreases during sleeping and exhalation reduces moisture.
When you wake up, do you sometimes have a sore throat or feel somewhat sticky in your mouth? To prevent these issues, you need a humidifier.
However, I’ve heard other opinions. Some people claim that,
“If I use a humidifier at night, I cannot sleep … because I feel a tickle in my throat.”
Or, “I feel chilly and and colder throughout my body, if I use a humidifier at night,”.
And, “If I use the humidifier while sleeping, I often sound like I have a frog in my throat next day”.
In conclusion, there are pros and cons to the habitual seasonal use of a humidifier. It really all depends on if a humidifier can bring the desired amount of moisture and balance into your home, and the sensitivity of the individual using it. Please consider all of these factors when purchasing or adding such a device into your personal space.
