It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only appear to talk about 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, particularly when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could really improve your comfort and your health.
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the frequency of colds and flus in the winter season. Also, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time traveling in moist air. Keeping your home at prime humidity could help you carry on feeling well all through the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Hearing your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air permits static charges to ditch 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.
Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel hotter during the winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will in fact make you feel warmer. Not only will the right humidity level keep you content, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel cozy you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay warm.
There are several more perks to keeping your home appropriately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will increase 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 questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns. Give us a call at 270-358-3167.
