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 appear to indicate during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively altering your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we devote in our home, specifically when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could really improve your comfort and your health. Staying Healthy Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the frequency of colds and flus in the colder months. Also, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time traveling in moist air. Maintaining your home at optimal 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? Hearing your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air allows static charges to depart items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is sure to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers help 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 actually make you feel cozier. Not only will the right humidity level keep you content, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay warm. There are numerous more benefits to keeping your home adequately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will increase both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also help save you money in the process. We’d love to answer any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries.
