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 appear to mention during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively altering your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we fill in our home, especially when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could greatly enhance your comfort and also your health. Staying Healthy Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which filter 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 traveling in moist air. Maintaining your home at prime humidity could help you carry on feeling well during the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Catching your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air allows static charges to leave items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge can’t go anywhere, and someone is going to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers allow your home feel more comfortable during the colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer seems warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will in fact make you feel warmer. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay cozy. There are numerous more perks to keeping your home properly 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 respond to any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns.
