Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

January 03, 2017

It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only appear to talk about during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully affecting your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we fill in our home, especially when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could greatly upgrade your comfort along with your health.

Staying Healthy
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the likelihood of colds and flus in the winter time. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time moving in moist air. Setting your home at ideal humidity could help you carry on feeling well all through the coming season.

Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been upsetting your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air allows static charges to leave things in the room because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is going to get shocked.

Increased Comfort
Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel warmer during the wintertime. Just like a humid day in the summer seems 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 warmer you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay cozy.

There are numerous 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 decrease your spending in the process. We’d love to respond to any uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns.
