Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

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

Staying Healthy
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also increases the likelihood of colds and flus in the colder months. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time drifting in moist air. Setting your home at ideal humidity could help you carry on feeling well during the coming season.

Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Listening to your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air permits static charges to leave items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge can’t go anywhere, and someone is bound to get shocked.

Increased Comfort
Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel hotter 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 appropriate humidity level keep you content, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay warm.

There are numerous more benefits to keeping your home adequately 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 help you with any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries.
