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 appear to talk about during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively influencing your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we devote in our home, particularly when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could greatly enhance your comfort and also your health. Staying Healthy Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter time. Also, bacteria and viruses have a harder time moving in moist air. Keeping your home at ideal humidity could help you carry on feeling well during the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been upsetting your family and pets? Catching your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air lets static charges to leave things in the room because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is bound to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel more comfortable during the winter months.

Not only will the right humidity level keep you content, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel warmer you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay warm. There are many more benefits to keeping your home appropriately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will improve both your indoor air quality and your comfort.
