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 appear to talk about during the summer, 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, specifically when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could significantly enhance your comfort and also your health.

Staying Healthy
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also increases the likelihood of colds and flus in the colder months. Also, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time moving in moist air. Setting your home at prime humidity could help you continue feeling well throughout the coming season.

Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking 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 can’t go anywhere, and someone is sure to get shocked.

Increased Comfort
Whole-home humidifiers allow your home feel more comfortable 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 comfortable, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay warm.

There are several more advantages to keeping your home adequately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will improve both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also decrease your spending in the process. We’d love to respond to any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries. Give us a call at 828-283-0369.
