Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

Air Quality

We’ve all heard the saying, “it’s not the heat, it’s the humidity”, well during the winter months it’s not the heat, it’s your home’s absence of humidity. Humidity is normally to blame for our discomfort during the summer, but a shortage of humidity during the colder months in Ridgedale and the Branson area will not only make you uncomfortable it can also adversely affect your indoor air quality. As you’ll probably be spending more time indoors this season, a whole-home humidifier could be just the answer you need to improve both your comfort and your health.

Keeping Healthy
By maintaining the proper humidity levels within your home you can also stop the spread of infection. Without any moisture in the air, the mucous membranes throughout your sinuses will dry out and won’t be able to filter out bacteria. Bacteria and viruses that are the source of the cold and flu have an easier time traveling through dry air, which is why they are so commonplace during the winter months. By maintaining the humidity levels in your home at the optimal levels you can expect improved health throughout the winter.

Combating Static Electricity
If your touches have been zapping your friends and family, you have a humidity issue on your hands. One thing water does is conducts electricity, having moisture in the air gives static charges a way to leave an object. If there’s no moisture in the air, that charge will have nowhere to go except out your fingertips onto the next thing you touch.

More Comfort
A whole-home humidifier can make your Ridgedale and the Branson area home feel more comfortable this season. Humidity during the cold months has the same effect it does during the summer; it makes you feel warmer than it actually is. The additional humidity in the house will mean that you won’t have to set the thermostat so high to stay comfy, which could save you money.

This only touches the surface of the benefits of having a properly humidified home. Both your comfort, and your indoor air quality can be improved with the installation of one of our whole-home humidity products.
