Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification01/03/2017It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to mention during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively influencing your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we fill in our home, particularly when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could significantly improve your comfort and your health. Staying Healthy Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the likelihood of colds and flus in the colder months. Also, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time drifting in moist air. Keeping your home at ideal humidity could help you continue feeling well all through the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Listening to your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air permits static charges to leave 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 more heat. Not only will the right humidity level keep you at ease, it could also help save you money. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay comfortable. There are several more benefits to keeping your home properly 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 help you with any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality apprehensions.
