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 months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively altering your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we fill in our home, particularly when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could greatly enhance your comfort along with your health. Staying Healthy Having the appropriate 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 sift out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter season. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a harder time moving in moist air. Setting your home at prime humidity could help you continue 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 pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air permits static charges to leave objects because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is bound to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel hotter during the colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer seems warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel cozier. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you at ease, it could also help save you money. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay cozy. There are numerous more benefits 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 help you with any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries.
