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 talk about during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively affecting your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we fill in our home, especially when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could significantly improve your comfort and also your health. Staying Healthy Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the likelihood of colds and flus in the colder months. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time traveling in moist air. Keeping 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 upsetting your family and pets? Listening to your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air permits 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 actually make you feel warmer. Not only will the correct 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 warm. There are many more advantages to keeping your home adequately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will enhance both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also decrease your spending in the process. We’d love to respond to any uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality apprehensions.
