It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only appear to talk about during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully altering your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we fill in our home, especially when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could significantly improve your comfort and your health.
Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air deficient 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. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time moving in moist air. Setting your home at prime humidity could help you carry on feeling well throughout the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Hearing your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air permits static charges to ditch items 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 colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel cozier. Not only will the right humidity level keep you content, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel cozy you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay warm.
There are several more perks to keeping your home properly 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 help you with any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries. Give us a call at 407-477-6319.
