Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification01/03/2017It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only appear to indicate during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively influencing your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we fill in our home, especially when it’s cold outside, 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 halt the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also increases the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter time. Also, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time moving in moist air. Keeping your home at prime 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 crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air permits static charges to ditch things in the room because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is sure to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel more comfortable during the colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer seems 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 comfortable, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel cozy you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay cozy. There are numerous more advantages to keeping your home adequately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will increase both your indoor air quality and your comfort.
