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 months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively altering your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we fill in our home, especially when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could really enhance your comfort and your health. Staying Healthy Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help prevent 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 likelihood of colds and flus in the winter time. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a harder time moving in moist air. Setting your home at ideal humidity could help you keep on 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 allows static charges to depart items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge is stuck where it is, and someone is sure 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 in fact make you feel cozier. Not only will the right humidity level keep you content, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel warmer you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay warm. There are numerous more perks to keeping your home adequately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will improve 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 worries.
