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 seem to mention during the warmer seasons, 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, specifically when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could really upgrade your comfort and also 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 filter out bacteria. Dry air also increases the prevalence of colds and flus in the colder months. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time traveling in moist air. Setting 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 upsetting your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air allows static charges to depart things in the room because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge can’t go anywhere, and someone is sure to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel hotter during the wintertime. Just like a humid day in the summer might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel cozier. Not only will the right humidity level keep you at ease, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel warmer you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay comfortable. There are many more benefits to keeping your home appropriately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will increase both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also lower your monthly bills in the process. We’d love to help you with any uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries.
