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 devote in our home, especially when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could really enhance your comfort and your health. Staying Healthy Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the frequency of colds and flus in the winter time. Also, bacteria and viruses have a harder time traveling in moist air. Setting your home at optimal humidity could help you carry on 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 crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air allows static charges to leave things in the room because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge is stuck where it is, and someone is going to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel hotter during the wintertime. 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 warmer. 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 hike up your thermostat to stay comfortable. There are several 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 help you with any uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality apprehensions.
