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 talk about during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively altering your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we fill in our home, specifically when it’s in the colder months, 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 prevent the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also increases the frequency of colds and flus in the colder months. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a harder time drifting in moist air. Maintaining your home at prime humidity could help you continue feeling well all through the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air allows static charges to depart objects 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 allow your home feel more comfortable during the colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel cozier. Not only will the right humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel cozy you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay cozy.
