It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to mention during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively influencing your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we devote in our home, specifically when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could really upgrade your comfort along with your health.
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the likelihood of colds and flus in the winter season. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time moving in moist air. Setting your home at prime humidity could help you continue feeling well throughout the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been upsetting your family and pets? Catching your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air allows static charges to depart 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.
Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel hotter during the winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer seems warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel more heat. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel warmer you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay comfortable.
There are numerous more advantages to keeping your home properly humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will improve both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also help save you money in the process. We’d love to respond to any uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality apprehensions.
