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 indicate during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively influencing your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we fill in our home, especially when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could greatly enhance your comfort and also your health. Staying Healthy Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help halt 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 prevalence of colds and flus in the winter season. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a harder 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 alarming your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air allows static charges to ditch objects because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is going to get shocked. Increased Comfort Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel warmer during the wintertime. 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 at ease, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel cozy you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay comfortable.
