It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only appear to mention during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully altering your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we devote in our home, especially when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could greatly enhance your comfort and also your health.
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the likelihood of colds and flus in the winter season. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time drifting in moist air. Keeping your home at ideal humidity could help you keep on feeling well during the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been upsetting your family and pets? Listening to your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. 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 bound to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers allow your home feel hotter during the winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will in fact make you feel more heat. Not only will the right humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel warmer you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay comfortable.
There are many more benefits 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 answer any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns. Give us a call at 715-301-0727.
