cozy winter home

Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

We’ve all heard the saying, “it’s not the heat, it’s the humidity”, well during the winter months it’s not the heat, it’s your home’s absence of humidity. Humidity is typically to blame for our discomfort during the summer, but a shortage of humidity during the colder months in Safford will not only make you uncomfortable it can also adversely affect your indoor air quality. As you’ll probably be spending more time indoors this season, a whole-home humidifier could be exactly what you need to improve both your comfort and your health.

Keeping Healthy
Sustaining proper humidity levels within your home you can also stop the spread of infection. Without humidity in the air, the mucous membranes within your sinuses will dry out and won’t be able to filter out bacteria. Bacteria and viruses that lead to the cold and flu have an easier time traveling through dry air, which is why they are so rampant during the winter months. By maintaining the humidity levels in your home at the correct levels you can expect to feel a lot better throughout the winter.

Combating Static Electricity
If your touches have been zapping your friends and family, you have humidity troubles on your hands. One thing water does is conducts electricity, having moisture in the air gives static charges a way to leave an object. If there’s no moisture in the air, that charge will have nowhere to exit except out your fingertips onto the next thing you touch.

More Comfort
A whole-home humidifier can make your Safford home feel more warm and cozy this season. Humidity during the cooler months has the same effect it does during the summer; it makes you feel warmer than it really is. Additional moisture in the house will mean that you won’t have to set the thermostat so high to stay comfy, which could save you money.

This only touches the surface of the benefits of having an appropriately humidified home. Both your comfort, and your indoor air quality can be positively impacted with the installation of one of our whole-home humidity products.
