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 summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully altering your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we spend in our home, especially when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could greatly enhance your comfort and also your health. Staying Healthy Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside 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 drifting in moist air. Keeping your home at ideal humidity could help you keep on feeling well during the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Catching your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air allows static charges to depart objects because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge is stuck where it is, and someone is bound to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel hotter during the winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel cozier. 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 increase your thermostat to stay warm. There are many more benefits 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 worries.
