Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

January 03, 2017

It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to talk about during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively altering your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we devote in our home, especially when it’s in the colder months, 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 lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the frequency of colds and flus in the colder months. Also, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time moving in moist air. Keeping your home at prime humidity could help you keep on feeling well throughout 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 predicament. Moisture in the air allows static charges to depart 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 let your home feel warmer during the colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel more heat. Not only will the right humidity level keep you at ease, it could also help save you money. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay warm.

There are several more perks to keeping your home adequately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will increase both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also lower your monthly bills in the process. We’d love to answer any uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries. Give us a call at 601-736-7362.
