It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to indicate during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully influencing your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we devote in our home, specifically when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could really improve your comfort and also your health.
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the likelihood of colds and flus in the winter time. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time traveling in moist air. Maintaining your home at ideal humidity could help you carry on feeling well throughout the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been upsetting your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air allows 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.
Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel hotter during the colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer seems warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel warmer. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you at ease, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel warmer you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay comfortable.
There are several more advantages to keeping your home appropriately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will improve both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also decrease your spending in the process. We’d love to help you with any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality apprehensions.
