It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to indicate during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively altering your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we fill in our home, particularly when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could significantly enhance your comfort and your health.
Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also increases the frequency of colds and flus in the winter season. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time moving in moist air. Keeping 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 problem. Moisture in the air allows static charges to leave objects because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge is stuck where it is, and someone is going to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers allow your home feel hotter during the winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel cozier. Not only will the right humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also help save you money. If you feel warmer you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay warm.
There are many more advantages to keeping your home adequately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will improve both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also help save you money in the process. We’d love to respond to any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality apprehensions. Give us a call at 715-301-0256.
