Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification01/03/2017It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to mention during the months of heat, 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 proper humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the likelihood of colds and flus in the winter time. Also, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time traveling in moist air. Maintaining your home at ideal humidity could help you keep on feeling well during the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Catching your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air permits static charges to leave items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is sure 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 might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel warmer. Not only will the right humidity level keep you at ease, it could also decrease your spending. 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 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 help you with any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns.
