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 talk about during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively influencing your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we devote in our home, particularly when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could really enhance your comfort and also your health. Staying Healthy Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter season. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time moving in moist air. Maintaining your home at prime humidity could help you keep on feeling well during the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. 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 sure to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel more comfortable 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 warmer. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you content, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay comfortable. There are many more benefits to keeping your home properly humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will enhance both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also help save you money in the process. We’d love to answer any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns.
