It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to talk about during the months of heat, 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, particularly when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could greatly improve your comfort and your health.
Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help prevent 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 likelihood of colds and flus in the colder months. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time moving in moist air. Keeping your home at ideal 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 problem. Moisture in the air lets static charges to ditch things in the room because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is going to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers allow your home feel warmer during the colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel warmer. 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 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 decrease your spending in the process. We’d love to help you with any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns. Give us a call at 850-250-0335.
