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 mention during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively altering your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we spend in our home, especially when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could significantly improve your comfort and 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 within your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also increases the likelihood of colds and flus in the winter time. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time moving in moist air. Setting your home at prime humidity could help you keep on feeling well all through the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been upsetting your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air permits static charges to ditch objects because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge is stuck where it is, and someone is sure to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel hotter during the wintertime. Just like a humid day in the summer seems warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel cozier. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you at ease, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay warm. There are several more advantages to keeping your home adequately 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.
