Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to talk about during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully influencing your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we spend in our home, specifically when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could greatly upgrade your comfort and also your health.

Staying Healthy
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the frequency of colds and flus in the colder months. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time drifting in moist air. Setting your home at optimal 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 shocking your family and pets? Hearing your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air allows static charges to depart items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge can’t go anywhere, and someone is going to get shocked.

Increased Comfort
Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel warmer 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 more heat. 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 comfortable.

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.
