Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification01/03/2017It’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 destructively altering your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we fill in our home, particularly when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could greatly upgrade your comfort and your health. Staying Healthy Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air deficient in 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 season. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time moving in moist air. Keeping your home at optimal 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 upsetting 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 ditch things in the room because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge is stuck where it is, and someone is sure to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel warmer 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 warmer. Not only will the right humidity level keep you content, it could also help save you money. If you feel warmer you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay comfortable. There are several more benefits to keeping your home adequately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will improve both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also help save you money in the process. We’d love to respond to any uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns.
