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 seem to indicate 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 spend in our home, specifically when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could really 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 clean out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the likelihood of colds and flus in the winter time. Also, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time moving in moist air. Setting 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? Hearing your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air allows static charges to ditch objects because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is going to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel warmer during the colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer seems warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel warmer. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you content, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel warmer you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay comfortable. There are numerous more advantages to keeping your home adequately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will enhance 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 worries.
