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 look to mention during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively influencing your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we fill in our home, specifically when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could significantly upgrade your comfort and your health. Staying Healthy Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the frequency of colds and flus in the colder months. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time traveling in moist air. Setting your home at prime 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? Hearing your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air lets static charges to ditch items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge is stuck where it is, and someone is going to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel hotter during the colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel cozier. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel warmer you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay comfortable. There are several more perks to keeping your home properly humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will improve 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.
