Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

January 03, 2017

It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to indicate during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively influencing your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we devote in our home, especially when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could really improve your comfort and 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 sift out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter season. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time moving in moist air. Keeping your home at prime humidity could help you continue 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 predicament. Moisture in the air lets static charges to leave objects because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, 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 seems warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel more heat. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you content, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay comfortable.
