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 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 cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could greatly improve your comfort along with 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 in your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the prevalence of colds and flus in the colder months. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time moving in moist air. Keeping your home at prime humidity could help you continue feeling well throughout the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air permits static charges to ditch things in the room because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is bound 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 might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will in fact make you feel more heat. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you at ease, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay comfortable. There are many 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 help you with any uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries.
