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 seem to mention during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully affecting your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we devote in our home, particularly when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could greatly upgrade your comfort and also your health. Staying Healthy Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the frequency of colds and flus in the winter time. Also, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time drifting in moist air. Keeping your home at ideal 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 dilemma. Moisture in the air permits static charges to ditch items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge is stuck where it is, and someone is bound to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers allow your home feel hotter during the wintertime. Just like a humid day in the summer feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will in fact make you feel cozier. Not only will the right humidity level keep you content, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel warmer you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay warm. There are many more advantages to keeping your home appropriately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will enhance 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 uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries.
