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 look to mention during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively influencing your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we spend in our home, particularly when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could greatly upgrade your comfort and also your health. Staying Healthy Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also increases the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter time. Also, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time drifting in moist air. Keeping your home at ideal humidity could help you keep on feeling well all through the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. 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 help your home feel more comfortable during the winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel cozier. Not only will the right humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also help save you money. If you feel warmer you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay warm. There are many more advantages to keeping your home appropriately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will enhance both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also lower your monthly bills in the process. We’d love to respond to any uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries.
