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 seem to indicate during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively altering your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we devote in our home, especially when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could significantly enhance your comfort along with your health. Staying Healthy Having the correct 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 filter out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter time. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time moving in moist air. Maintaining your home at optimal humidity could help you keep 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 crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air allows static charges to leave things in the room because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge can’t go anywhere, and someone is sure to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel warmer during the colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel warmer. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel cozy you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay warm. There are many more advantages to keeping your home adequately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will enhance both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also lower your monthly bills in the process. We’d love to answer any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries.
