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 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 spend in our home, especially when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could significantly upgrade your comfort and your health. Staying Healthy Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the likelihood of colds and flus in the winter season. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time moving in moist air. Setting your home at ideal 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? Catching your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air permits static charges to depart things in the room 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 more comfortable during the winter months. 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 decrease your spending. If you feel warmer you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay comfortable. There are many more benefits to keeping your home properly 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.
