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 look to talk about during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively affecting your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we spend in our home, especially when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could greatly enhance your comfort along with your health. Staying Healthy Having the appropriate 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 adds to the frequency of colds and flus in the colder months. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time moving in moist air. Maintaining your home at optimal humidity could help you continue feeling well during the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Catching your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. 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 can’t go anywhere, and someone is going to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel warmer during the winter months.
