It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to talk about during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively altering your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we devote in our home, specifically when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could significantly upgrade your comfort and your health.
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which sift 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. Maintaining your home at ideal 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? Hearing your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air permits static charges to depart things in the room 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 more comfortable during the winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel warmer. Not only will the right humidity level keep you at ease, it could also help save you money. If you feel warmer you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay comfortable.
There are several 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 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 concerns. Give us a call at 201-268-5663.
