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 seem to mention during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively altering your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we spend in our home, specifically when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could greatly upgrade your comfort and also your health. Staying Healthy Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also increases the prevalence of colds and flus in the colder months. Also, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time traveling in moist air. Keeping your home at optimal humidity could help you continue feeling well all through the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Catching your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air lets static charges to depart 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.
