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 negatively altering your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we fill in our home, especially when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could significantly improve your comfort and also your health.
Having the proper 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 filter out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the frequency of colds and flus in the winter season. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time traveling in moist air. Setting your home at ideal humidity could help you keep on feeling well throughout the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Catching your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air permits static charges to ditch things in the room because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge can’t go anywhere, and someone is bound to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel hotter during the winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel cozier. Not only will the right humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel cozy you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay cozy.
There are several more advantages to keeping your home adequately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will enhance both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also lower your monthly bills in the process. We’d love to help you with any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries. Give us a call at 325-200-4667.
