Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification01/03/2017It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to mention during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully influencing your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we spend in our home, specifically when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could really upgrade your comfort and your health. Staying Healthy Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the frequency of colds and flus in the winter time. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time drifting in moist air. Maintaining your home at ideal humidity could help you carry 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? Listening to your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. 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 sure to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers allow your home feel warmer 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 cozier. Not only will the right humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay warm. There are numerous 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 lower your monthly bills in the process. We’d love to respond to any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries.
