It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to mention during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully altering your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we fill in our home, especially when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could greatly improve your comfort and also your health.
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter time. Also, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time traveling in moist air. Setting your home at optimal 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 problem. Moisture in the air permits static charges to depart objects 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 hotter during the wintertime. Just like a humid day in the summer might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel cozier. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you at ease, it could also help save you money. If you feel cozy you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay cozy.
There are many more perks to keeping your home adequately 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 respond to any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns. Give us a call at 479-308-8176.
