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 comfort. As much time as we devote in our home, specifically when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could really improve your comfort and also your health. Staying Healthy Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also increases the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter season. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a harder time moving in moist air. Keeping your home at optimal humidity could help you carry on feeling well throughout the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been upsetting your family and pets? Catching your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air allows static charges to depart things in the room because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge is stuck where it is, and someone is going to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers allow your home feel hotter during the winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel more heat. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also help save you money. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay cozy. There are several more perks to keeping your home adequately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will improve both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also decrease your spending in the process. We’d love to help you with any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality apprehensions.
