Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

January 03, 2017

It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only appear to indicate during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively affecting your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we devote in our home, especially when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could really enhance your comfort and your health.

Staying Healthy
Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also increases the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter time. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a harder time traveling in moist air. Setting your home at prime humidity could help you carry 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 crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air lets static charges to ditch items 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 help your home feel warmer during the colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel warmer. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel cozy you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay warm.

There are numerous more perks to keeping your home adequately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will enhance both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also decrease your spending in the process. We’d love to respond to any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality apprehensions.
