Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

January 03, 2017

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

Staying Healthy
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 clean out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the frequency of colds and flus in the winter season. Also, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time traveling in moist air. Keeping your home at prime humidity could help you continue feeling well throughout the coming season.

Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Hearing your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air permits static charges to depart items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge is stuck where it is, and someone is sure 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 might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel warmer. Not only will the right humidity level keep you content, it could also help save you money. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay cozy.

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