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 look 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 wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could really improve your comfort along with your health. Staying Healthy Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the prevalence of colds and flus in the colder months. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time moving in moist air. Setting your home at optimal humidity could help you continue feeling well all through the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been upsetting your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air permits static charges to depart items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is going to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers allow your home feel hotter during the wintertime. Just like a humid day in the summer seems warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel more heat. Not only will the right humidity level keep you content, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel cozy you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay cozy. There are several more benefits 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 uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries.
