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 look to indicate 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 fill in our home, specifically when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could significantly upgrade your comfort and your health. Staying Healthy Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also increases the frequency of colds and flus in the winter time. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a harder time moving in moist air. Setting your home at ideal humidity could help you keep on feeling well during the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air lets 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 hotter 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 content, it could also lower your monthly bills. 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 appropriately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will increase both your indoor air quality and your comfort.
