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 appear to indicate during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively affecting your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we spend in our home, especially when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could really upgrade your comfort along with your health. Staying Healthy Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the likelihood of colds and flus in the winter time. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult 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 shocking 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 depart 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 allow your home feel more comfortable during the colder seasons. 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 warmer. Not only will the right humidity level keep you at ease, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel warmer you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay comfortable. There are several more advantages to keeping your home adequately 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 help you with any uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries.
