It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to talk about during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully affecting your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we devote in our home, particularly when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could really improve your comfort and also your health.
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the frequency of colds and flus in the winter time. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time moving in moist air. Setting your home at ideal 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? Hearing your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air allows static charges to leave things in the room because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is sure to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel more comfortable during the wintertime. Just like a humid day in the summer seems warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will in fact make you feel more heat. Not only will the right humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel warmer you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay comfortable.
There are numerous more benefits to keeping your home appropriately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will enhance both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also lower your monthly bills in the process. We’d love to respond to any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries. Give us a call at 308-646-3827.
