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 look to mention during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively influencing your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we spend in our home, specifically when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could really enhance your comfort along with your health. Staying Healthy Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the prevalence of colds and flus in the colder months. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time traveling in moist air. Keeping your home at prime humidity could help you keep on feeling well all through the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Catching your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air lets 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 going to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel more comfortable during the colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer seems warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will in fact make you feel cozier. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you at ease, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel warmer you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay warm. There are several 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 questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries.
