Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to indicate during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively affecting your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we spend in our home, specifically when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could greatly improve your comfort and your health.

Staying Healthy
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the frequency of colds and flus in the colder months. Also, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time traveling in moist air. Keeping your home at ideal humidity could help you keep on feeling well during the coming season.

Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Hearing your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air allows static charges to leave objects because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge can’t go anywhere, and someone is bound to get shocked.

Increased Comfort
Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel hotter during the colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will in fact make you feel warmer. Not only will the right humidity level keep you at ease, it could also help save you money. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay warm.

There are many more advantages to keeping your home properly humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will improve both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also lower your monthly bills in the process. We’d love to answer any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality apprehensions.
