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 look to mention during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively influencing your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we spend in our home, especially when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could greatly improve your comfort and your health. Staying Healthy Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also increases the frequency of colds and flus in the colder months. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a harder time moving in moist air. Setting 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 crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. 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 can’t go anywhere, and someone is going to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers allow your home feel hotter during the winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel cozier. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also help save you money. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay comfortable. There are many more benefits to keeping your home appropriately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will increase both your indoor air quality and your comfort.
