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 seem to talk about during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively influencing your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we devote in our home, particularly when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could significantly upgrade your comfort and also your health. Staying Healthy Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter season. Also, bacteria and viruses have a harder time moving in moist air. Setting 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 pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air permits static charges to leave objects because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge can’t go anywhere, 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 feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel warmer. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you content, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel warmer you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay cozy. There are several more perks to keeping your home appropriately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will improve both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also lower your monthly bills in the process. We’d love to respond to any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns.
