Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification01/03/2017It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to talk about during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully affecting your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we fill in our home, specifically when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could significantly upgrade your comfort along with your health. Staying Healthy Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also increases the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter time. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a harder time traveling in moist air. Maintaining your home at ideal humidity could help you keep on feeling well all through the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Hearing your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air allows static charges to ditch things in the room 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 in fact make you feel more heat. Not only will the right humidity level keep you content, it could also help save you money. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay cozy. There are many 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 help save you money in the process. We’d love to help you with any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality apprehensions.
