It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to talk about during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively influencing your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we devote in our home, particularly when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could significantly enhance your comfort and your health.
Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air lacking in 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 winter season. Also, bacteria and viruses have a harder time traveling in moist air. Setting your home at optimal humidity could help you keep on feeling well throughout the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Hearing your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air allows static charges to depart objects because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is sure to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel hotter during the wintertime. Just like a humid day in the summer feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel more heat. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you at ease, it could also help save you money. If you feel warmer you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay warm.
There are numerous more advantages to keeping your home properly humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will enhance both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also decrease your spending 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 907-202-9798.
