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 seem to talk about during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully influencing your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we spend in our home, particularly when it’s cold outside, 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 prevent the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the likelihood of colds and flus in the winter season. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time traveling in moist air. Keeping your home at ideal humidity could help you continue feeling well during the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been upsetting your family and pets? Hearing your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air allows static charges to ditch things in the room 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 let your home feel more comfortable during the wintertime. 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 correct humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also help save you money. If you feel cozy you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay cozy. There are numerous more advantages to keeping your home adequately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will enhance 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 apprehensions.
