Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

You’ve probably heard the saying, “it’s not the heat, it’s the humidity”, well during the winter months it’s not the heat, it’s your home’s shortage of humidity. Humidity is normally to blame for our discomfort during the summer, but a absence of humidity during the colder months in Saint Charles will not only make you uncomfortable it can also adversely affect your indoor air quality. The cold weather means you’ll be spending more time indoors, a whole-home humidifier could be the answer you’ve been looking for to improve both your comfort and your health.

Keeping Healthy
Keeping proper humidity levels within your home you can also put a halt to the spread of infection. Without humidity in the air, the mucous membranes inside your sinuses will dry out and will have trouble filtering out bacteria. Bacteria and viruses that are the source of the cold and flu have an easier time traveling through dry air, which is why they are so prevalent during the winter months. By maintaining the humidity levels in your home at the proper levels you can expect to feel a lot better throughout the winter.

Combating Static Electricity
If your touches have been zapping your friends and family, you have a humidity issue on your hands. Because water conducts electricity, having moisture in the air gives static charges a path to leave an object. If your air lacks moisture, that charge will have nowhere to go except out your fingertips onto the next thing you touch.

More Comfort
A whole-home humidifier can make your Saint Charles home feel warmer and more enjoyable this season. Humidity during the cold months has the same effect it does during the summer; it makes you feel warmer than it truly is. Having additional humidity in the house will mean that you won’t have to set the thermostat so high to stay comfy, which could save you money.

This only touches the surface of the benefits of having an adequately humidified home. Both your comfort, and your indoor air quality can be positively impacted with the installation of one of our whole-home humidity products.
