Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification01/03/2017It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to indicate during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively altering your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we spend in our home, specifically when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could greatly improve your comfort along with your health. Staying Healthy Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the likelihood of colds and flus in the colder months. Also, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time drifting in moist air. Keeping your home at prime humidity could help you carry on feeling well all through the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Catching your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air permits static charges to depart items 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 help your home feel warmer during the wintertime. Just like a humid day in the summer seems warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel cozier. Not only will the right humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay warm. There are many more benefits to keeping your home adequately 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 respond to any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality apprehensions.
