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 talk about during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively influencing your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we spend in our home, particularly when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could significantly improve your comfort and your health. Staying Healthy Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the likelihood of colds and flus in the colder months. Also, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time drifting in moist air. Setting your home at prime humidity could help you continue feeling well during the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air lets static charges to ditch items 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 hotter during the colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will in fact make you feel more heat. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay comfortable. There are several more advantages to keeping your home adequately 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 respond to any uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries.
