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 warmer seasons, 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 greatly upgrade your comfort along with your health. Staying Healthy Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also increases the likelihood of colds and flus in the winter season. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time traveling in moist air. Setting your home at prime humidity could help you continue feeling well during 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 dilemma.
