Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification01/03/2017It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only appear to indicate during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively influencing your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we fill in our home, specifically when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could really improve your comfort and your health. Staying Healthy Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the frequency of colds and flus in the winter time. Also, bacteria and viruses have a harder time traveling in moist air. Maintaining your home at optimal humidity could help you carry on feeling well during the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Hearing your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air allows static charges to ditch items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge can’t go anywhere, and someone is going to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel more comfortable during the colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel more heat. Not only will the right humidity level keep you at ease, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel cozy you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay warm. There are several more perks to keeping your home adequately 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 questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality apprehensions.
