It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to indicate during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively altering your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we devote in our home, especially when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could greatly improve your comfort and also your health.
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help prevent 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 winter time. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a harder time traveling in moist air. Setting your home at optimal humidity could help you continue feeling well during the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been upsetting your family and pets? Catching your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air permits static charges to leave objects because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge can’t go anywhere, and someone is sure to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel warmer during the winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will in fact 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 hike up your thermostat to stay cozy.
