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 seem to talk about during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively affecting your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we fill in our home, particularly when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could really improve your comfort along with your health. Staying Healthy Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the likelihood of colds and flus in the winter time. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a harder time drifting 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 shocking your family and pets? Listening to your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air allows static charges to ditch 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 cozier. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you at ease, it could also help save you money. If you feel cozy you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay comfortable. There are numerous more benefits to keeping your home properly humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will increase both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also help save you money in the process. We’d love to answer any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns.
