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 mention 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, especially when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could significantly enhance your comfort and your health. Staying Healthy Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the likelihood of colds and flus in the winter time. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time drifting in moist air. Setting your home at prime humidity could help you continue feeling well during the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Catching your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air permits static charges to depart 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 allow your home feel more comfortable during the colder seasons. 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 right humidity level keep you at ease, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay warm. There are numerous more benefits 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 respond to any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality apprehensions.
