It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to mention during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively affecting your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we fill in our home, particularly when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could greatly upgrade your comfort and your health.
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the frequency of colds and flus in the winter time. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time moving in moist air. Keeping your home at prime humidity could help you keep 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 crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air permits static charges to depart items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge can’t go anywhere, and someone is sure to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel more comfortable during the winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel cozier. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also help save you money. If you feel warmer you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay comfortable.
There are many more advantages to keeping your home adequately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will increase both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also help save you money in the process. We’d love to respond to any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns. Give us a call at 208-621-0129.
