Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only appear to mention during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively influencing your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we fill in our home, specifically when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could greatly enhance your comfort and also 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 in your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the likelihood of colds and flus in the colder months. Also, bacteria and viruses have a harder time traveling in moist air. Setting your home at optimal humidity could help you carry on 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 pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air allows static charges to ditch items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is bound to get shocked.

Increased Comfort
Whole-home humidifiers allow your home feel hotter during the winter months. 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 correct humidity level keep you content, it could also help save you money. If you feel cozy you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay comfortable.
