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 appear to indicate during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully influencing your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we devote in our home, particularly when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could really upgrade your comfort and your health. Staying Healthy Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter season. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a harder time drifting in moist air. Keeping 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? Hearing your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air allows static charges to depart items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge can’t go anywhere, and someone is sure to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers let 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 in fact make you feel warmer. 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 comfortable. There are many more perks to keeping your home appropriately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will improve both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also lower your monthly bills in the process. We’d love to respond to any uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality apprehensions.
