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 seem to talk about during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively altering 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 significantly enhance your comfort along with your health. Staying Healthy Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the likelihood of colds and flus in the winter season. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a harder time moving in moist air. Setting your home at prime humidity could help you keep on feeling well during 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 dilemma. Moisture in the air lets static charges to leave items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge can’t go anywhere, and someone is sure to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers allow your home feel more comfortable during the wintertime.
