It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to mention during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully affecting your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we spend in our home, particularly when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could greatly improve your comfort along with your health.
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter time. Also, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time moving in moist air. Setting your home at optimal humidity could help you keep on feeling well throughout 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 permits 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 sure to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers allow your home feel more comfortable 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 more heat. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel cozy you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay cozy.
There are several more benefits to keeping your home properly humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will enhance both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also help save you money in the process. We’d love to help you with any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns. Give us a call at 740-200-5591.
