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 talk about during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully influencing your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we fill in our home, especially when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could significantly improve your comfort and your health. Staying Healthy Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter season. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time moving in moist air. Keeping your home at ideal humidity could help you keep on feeling well all through the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been upsetting your family and pets? Hearing your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air allows static charges to leave objects because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge can’t go anywhere, and someone is bound to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel warmer during the winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer seems warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will in fact make you feel warmer. Not only will the right humidity level keep you at ease, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel cozy you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay cozy. There are many more perks to keeping your home properly humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will improve 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 apprehensions.
