Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification01/03/2017It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only appear to mention during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively affecting your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we spend in our home, specifically when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could greatly improve your comfort and also your health. Staying Healthy Having the appropriate 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 sift out bacteria. Dry air also increases the likelihood of colds and flus in the colder months. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time drifting in moist air. Maintaining your home at prime humidity could help you carry on feeling well throughout the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Catching your sweater pop 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 allow 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 actually make you feel warmer. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel warmer you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay cozy. There are many more benefits to keeping your home appropriately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will improve both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also help save you money in the process. We’d love to answer any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality apprehensions.
