Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification01/03/2017It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to talk about during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively influencing your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we devote in our home, specifically when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could significantly enhance your comfort and 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 adds to the frequency of colds and flus in the colder months. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a harder time moving in moist air. Setting 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 upsetting your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air lets static charges to ditch things in the room 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 let 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 more heat. Not only will the correct 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 warm. There are many more perks to keeping your home properly humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will improve both your indoor air quality and your comfort.
