Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification01/03/2017It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to indicate during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively affecting your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we spend in our home, particularly when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could really enhance 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 within your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the frequency of colds and flus in the colder months. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a harder time traveling in moist air. Keeping your home at optimal humidity could help you carry on feeling well all through the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air allows static charges to leave objects because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge is stuck where it is, and someone is going to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel hotter during the wintertime. Just like a humid day in the summer seems warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel more heat. Not only will the right humidity level keep you at ease, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel cozy you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay cozy. There are many more perks to keeping your home appropriately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will enhance both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also help save you money in the process. We’d love to answer any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries.
