It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to indicate during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively affecting your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we fill in our home, especially when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could greatly improve your comfort and your health.
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air without 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 season. Also, bacteria and viruses have a harder time drifting in moist air. Maintaining your home at ideal 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? Hearing your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air allows 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 hotter during the wintertime. Just like a humid day in the summer feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel warmer. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you at ease, it could also help save you money. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay warm.
There are many more perks to keeping your home adequately 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 respond to any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality apprehensions.
