Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

January 03, 2017

It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to mention during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively influencing your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we spend in our home, specifically when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could significantly upgrade your comfort along with your health.

Staying Healthy
Having the correct 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 sift out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the frequency of colds and flus in the winter time. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time moving in moist air. Setting your home at optimal humidity could help you keep on feeling well throughout the coming season.

Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air allows static charges to depart things in the room because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is going 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 might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will in fact make you feel more heat. Not only will the right humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also help save you money. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay cozy.

There are several 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 decrease your spending in the process. We’d love to help you with any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries. Give us a call at 561-270-6228.
