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 appear to indicate during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively influencing your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we devote in our home, particularly when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could greatly upgrade your comfort and also your health. Staying Healthy Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the frequency of colds and flus in the winter time. Also, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time drifting in moist air. Maintaining your home at ideal humidity could help you continue feeling well all through the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Hearing your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air permits static charges to leave 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 let your home feel warmer during the winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel warmer. Not only will the right humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel warmer you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay comfortable. There are many more advantages to keeping your home appropriately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will increase both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also help save you money in the process. We’d love to respond to any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns.
