It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only appear to indicate during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively affecting your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we devote in our home, specifically when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could greatly enhance your comfort along with your health.
Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the frequency of colds and flus in the colder months. Also, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time traveling in moist air. Setting your home at optimal humidity could help you continue feeling well all through the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Catching your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air lets static charges to leave objects because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge is stuck where it is, and someone is bound to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers allow your home feel warmer during the winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer seems warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel cozier. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you content, it could also help save you money. If you feel cozy you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay cozy.
There are many more perks to keeping your home appropriately 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 respond to any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns. Give us a call at 952-373-0377.
