Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

Air Quality

You’ve probably heard the saying, “it’s not the heat, it’s the humidity”, well during the winter months it’s not the heat, it’s your home’s lack of humidity. Humidity is typically to blame for our discomfort during the summer, but a shortage of humidity during the colder months in Fort Pierce will not only make you uncomfortable it can also adversely affect your indoor air quality. The winter means you’ll be spending more time indoors, a whole-home humidifier could be just the answer you need to improve both your comfort and your health.

Keeping Healthy
Keeping proper humidity levels within your home you can also put a halt to the spread of infection. Without humidity in the air, the mucous membranes throughout your sinuses will dry out and will be unable to filter out bacteria. Bacteria and viruses that lead to the cold and flu have an easier time traveling through dry air, which is why they are so prevalent during the winter months. By maintaining the humidity levels in your home at the correct levels you can expect to feel a lot better throughout the winter.

Combating Static Electricity
If your touches have been zapping your friends and family, you have humidity troubles on your hands. Because water conducts electricity, having moisture in the air gives static charges a way to leave an object. If your air lacks moisture, that charge will have nowhere to exit except out your fingertips onto the next thing you touch.

More Comfort
A whole-home humidifier can make your Fort Pierce home feel warmer and more enjoyable this season. Humidity during the cold months has the same effect it does during the summer; it makes you feel warmer than it truly is. Having additional humidity in the house will mean that you won’t have to set the thermostat so high to stay comfortable, which could save you money.

This is just a few of the benefits of having a properly humidified home. Both your comfort, and your indoor air quality can be improved with the installation of one of our whole-home humidity products.
