It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only appear to talk about during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully affecting your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we spend in our home, especially when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could greatly improve your comfort along with your health.
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter time. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time moving in moist air. Keeping your home at optimal humidity could help you keep on feeling well all through the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air permits static charges to leave items 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 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 warmer. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you content, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel warmer you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay warm.
There are numerous 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 respond to any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns. Give us a call at 928-251-4327.
