It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to talk about during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively influencing your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we spend in our home, especially when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could really improve your comfort and your health.
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter time. Also, bacteria and viruses have a harder time traveling in moist air. Setting your home at ideal humidity could help you keep on feeling well all through the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Catching your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air permits static charges to leave things in the room because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is going to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel warmer during the wintertime. Just like a humid day in the summer feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will in fact make you feel warmer. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you content, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel warmer you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay warm.
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 decrease your spending in the process. We’d love to answer any uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries. Give us a call at 937-558-9478.
