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 look to mention during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively influencing your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we spend in our home, specifically when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could significantly upgrade your comfort along with 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 in your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the prevalence of colds and flus in the colder months. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a harder time drifting in moist air. Setting your home at prime humidity could help you continue feeling well throughout 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 predicament. Moisture in the air permits static charges to ditch items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge is stuck where it is, and someone is going to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel hotter during the colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel more heat. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you content, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel cozy you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay cozy. There are many more advantages to keeping your home properly 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 answer any uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality apprehensions.
