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 mention during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively affecting your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we fill in our home, specifically when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could greatly upgrade your comfort and your health. Staying Healthy Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the frequency of colds and flus in the winter time. Also, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time drifting in moist air. Keeping your home at optimal humidity could help you carry on feeling well all through the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Hearing your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air allows static charges to leave items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is sure to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel warmer during the winter months. 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 right humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel cozy you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay warm. There are numerous more perks 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 help you with any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality apprehensions.
