Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification01/03/2017It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to talk about 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 proper humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the likelihood of colds and flus in the winter season. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a harder time traveling in moist air. Maintaining your home at ideal humidity could help you keep on feeling well during the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air lets static charges to ditch objects 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 let your home feel hotter during the wintertime. Just like a humid day in the summer might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel warmer. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you content, it could also help save you money. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay warm. There are many more perks to keeping your home appropriately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will increase both your indoor air quality and your comfort.
