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 look to indicate during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully influencing your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we spend in our home, specifically when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could greatly improve your comfort and also your health. Staying Healthy Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the frequency of colds and flus in the winter season. Also, bacteria and viruses have a harder time drifting in moist air. Setting 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 alarming your family and pets? Hearing your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air permits static charges to ditch things in the room because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is bound 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 might feel 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 comfortable, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel cozy you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay comfortable. There are many more advantages to keeping your home appropriately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will improve both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also lower your monthly bills in the process. We’d love to answer any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries.
