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 indicate during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully influencing your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we devote in our home, especially when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could really enhance your comfort and your health. Staying Healthy Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the frequency of colds and flus in the colder months. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a harder time traveling in moist air. Keeping your home at optimal humidity could help you continue feeling well all through the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Catching your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air lets static charges to leave items 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 allow your home feel more comfortable during the winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel cozier. Not only will the right humidity level keep you at ease, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel warmer you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay comfortable. There are numerous more benefits to keeping your home properly humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will improve both your indoor air quality and your comfort.
