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 appear to indicate during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively affecting your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we spend in our home, specifically when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could significantly enhance your comfort and also your health. Staying Healthy Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the likelihood of colds and flus in the colder months. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time drifting in moist air. Keeping your home at optimal humidity could help you continue feeling well throughout 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 leave items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge can’t go anywhere, and someone is bound 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 more heat. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you content, it could also help save you money. If you feel cozy you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay warm. There are several more perks to keeping your home appropriately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will increase both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also decrease your spending in the process. We’d love to answer any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries.
