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 indicate during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully affecting your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we spend in our home, particularly when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could really improve your comfort and your health. Staying Healthy Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the likelihood of colds and flus in the winter season. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time drifting in moist air. Setting your home at prime humidity could help you keep on feeling well throughout the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Catching your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. 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 bound to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel warmer during the colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer seems warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel warmer. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you content, it could also help save you money. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay cozy. There are many more perks to keeping your home adequately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will increase both your indoor air quality and your comfort.
