It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to indicate during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully affecting 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 really upgrade your comfort and your health.
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air without 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. Also, bacteria and viruses have a harder time traveling in moist air. Maintaining your home at optimal humidity could help you carry on feeling well all through the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been upsetting your family and pets? Catching your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air allows static charges to leave items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is going to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel warmer during the wintertime. Just like a humid day in the summer might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel cozier. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel comfortable 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 answer any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns. Give us a call at 734-284-1224.
