Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

It’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 harmfully influencing your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we spend in our home, especially when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could greatly enhance your comfort along with 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 throughout 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 allows static charges to leave 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 truly make you feel cozier. Not only will the right humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay warm.

There are numerous more benefits to keeping your home appropriately 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 uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality apprehensions.
