It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to indicate during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively influencing 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 enhance your comfort and also your health.
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the likelihood of colds and flus in the colder months. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a harder time drifting in moist air. Setting your home at prime humidity could help you carry on feeling well during the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Catching your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air permits static charges to leave items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is going to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel more comfortable during the winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel cozier. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you content, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel warmer you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay cozy.
There are many more advantages to keeping your home appropriately 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 answer any uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns. Give us a call at 715-352-4052.
