Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to talk about during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively influencing your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we fill in our home, specifically when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could greatly enhance your comfort and your health.

Staying Healthy
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also increases the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter time. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time traveling in moist air. Setting your home at prime humidity could help you keep on feeling well all through the coming season.

Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking 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.

Increased Comfort
Whole-home humidifiers help 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 actually make you feel cozier. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay cozy.

There are many more benefits to keeping your home adequately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will enhance both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also decrease your spending in the process. We’d love to answer any uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality apprehensions.
