It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to talk about during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully affecting your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we fill in our home, especially when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could significantly enhance your comfort and your health.
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter time. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time drifting in moist air. Maintaining your home at optimal humidity could help you carry on feeling well all through the coming season.

Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem.
