Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification01/03/2017It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to indicate during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully affecting your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we devote in our home, specifically when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could greatly upgrade your comfort and your health. Staying Healthy Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also increases the likelihood of colds and flus in the winter season. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time drifting in moist air. Maintaining your home at ideal humidity could help you carry on feeling well throughout the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been upsetting your family and pets? Catching your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air lets static charges to leave things in the room because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge is stuck where it is, and someone is going to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel warmer during the colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel cozier. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay comfortable. There are several more benefits to keeping your home appropriately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will enhance both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also lower your monthly bills in the process. We’d love to answer any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries.
