Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification01/03/2017It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to mention during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively affecting your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we spend in our home, particularly when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could significantly improve your comfort and your health. Staying Healthy Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also increases the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter time. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time drifting in moist air. Maintaining your home at ideal 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 crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air permits static charges to ditch things in the room 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 allow your home feel more comfortable during the wintertime. Just like a humid day in the summer seems warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will in fact make you feel cozier. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you at ease, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel cozy you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay cozy. There are many more benefits to keeping your home properly humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will increase both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also decrease your spending in the process. We’d love to respond to any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality apprehensions.
