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 summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively altering your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we devote in our home, especially when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could greatly enhance your comfort and also your health. Staying Healthy Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the frequency of colds and flus in the colder months. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time moving in moist air. Maintaining 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 alarming your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air allows static charges to leave items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is going to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel warmer during the wintertime. Just like a humid day in the summer seems warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will in fact make you feel warmer. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also help save you money. If you feel warmer you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay warm. There are numerous more benefits to keeping your home properly humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will increase both your indoor air quality and your comfort.
