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 appear to indicate during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively influencing 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 really improve your comfort and your health. Staying Healthy Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the frequency of colds and flus in the winter time. Also, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time traveling in moist air. Maintaining your home at ideal humidity could help you continue feeling well throughout the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air allows static charges to ditch items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge is stuck where it is, and someone is bound to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel warmer during the winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will in fact make you feel more heat. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you content, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay cozy. There are several more perks to keeping your home adequately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will increase both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also lower your monthly bills in the process. We’d love to help you with any uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality apprehensions.
