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 look to mention during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully altering your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we devote in our home, particularly when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could greatly upgrade your comfort and 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 inside your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the frequency of colds and flus in the winter season. Also, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time moving in moist air. Keeping your home at ideal humidity could help you keep 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 pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air lets static charges to ditch things in the room 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 let your home feel warmer during the winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer seems warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel more heat. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you at ease, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay comfortable.
