Water Fountains Are Natural Humidifiers
Just the water alone automatically adds needed moisture into the surrounding air, which assists in purifying it. What this means is that a water fountain in your home can serve the purpose of a natural purifier and humidifier. A water fountain is really beneficial if you reside in a very dry environment that is susceptible to coal or road dust or if you suffer from allergies.
There are a variety of homeowners that make use of an artificial humidifier for the above-mentioned reasons. However, humidifiers often invite unwanted mildew or mold into the home. For this reason, a natural humidifier like a water feature is a far better choice for indoor environments as well as your health.
Your indoor plants or even your plants in your courtyard will grow far better in a humid and dust reduced environment. You may not know that dust can have a drastic effect on the ability of the plant to photosynthesize when the surface of the leaves are covered in dust. This dust also decreases the amount of light that the leaves are able to absorb. This is usually one of the concerns for a courtyard or low-light indoor environments.
If humidifying effects that a water fountain provides appeals to you, it is suggested to invest in one of the fountains that have a lot of flowing-water. We suggest our 2-tier black fountain that features a wrought-iron look. The tiered fountains encourage an increase in water movements and are also suggested to drown out outside noises such as road traffic or noisy neighbors.
Water Ionization Assists With Mood And Depression
Negative ions are the oxygen atoms which have been charged with one additional electron. The reason they are good has to do with the fact that they clear your air and prevent any hazardous airborne-particles developing in and around your home. Flowing water in the home or in the garden assists in the production of these negative ions.
These ionizing effects are also associated with increasing serotonin production in our bodies. Serotonin is a chemical which regulates your mood. When serotonin levels decrease or are low, you become susceptible to mood swings or depression.
This is the reason why a variety of experts recommend that people should use an indoor water fountain in their office or home. The majority of the electronic devices that we use daily also decrease the levels of negative ions present in our atmosphere.
An effective method to counteract this issue is the introduction of a water fountain or feature. The majority of the freestanding fountains we have for sale, like the “triple column” is able to fit neatly into just about any indoor location.
