Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification01/03/2017It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem 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 spend in our home, specifically when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could greatly improve your comfort and your health. Staying Healthy Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also increases the frequency of colds and flus in the winter season. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a harder time drifting in moist air. Maintaining your home at ideal humidity could help you keep on feeling well during the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been upsetting your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air lets static charges to ditch objects because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge can’t go anywhere, and someone is sure to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel hotter during the wintertime. Just like a humid day in the summer feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel more heat. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel cozy you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay warm. There are many more perks to keeping your home appropriately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will improve both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also help save you money in the process. We’d love to help you with any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries.
