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 appear to indicate during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively altering your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we devote in our home, especially when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could greatly improve your comfort along with 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 in your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also increases the frequency of colds and flus in the winter season. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time moving in moist air. Keeping your home at ideal humidity could help you carry on 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 dilemma. Moisture in the air lets static charges to ditch items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is going to get shocked.

Increased Comfort
Whole-home humidifiers allow your home feel hotter during the wintertime. Just like a humid day in the summer might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel warmer. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you at ease, it could also help save you money. If you feel cozy you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay warm.

There are several more perks to keeping your home appropriately 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 worries. Give us a call at 724-425-5852.
