Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

January 03, 2017

It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to mention during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively influencing your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we spend in our home, especially when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could really enhance your comfort and your health.

Staying Healthy
Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter season. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time drifting in moist air. Keeping your home at optimal humidity could help you continue feeling well throughout the coming season.

Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been upsetting your family and pets? Catching your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air lets static charges to depart things in the room because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge is stuck where it is, and someone is sure to get shocked.

Increased Comfort
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 actually make you feel more heat. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you at ease, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel cozy you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay warm.
