It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to indicate during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully influencing your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we fill in our home, particularly when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could greatly enhance your comfort along with your health.
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also increases the likelihood of colds and flus in the winter time. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time drifting in moist air. Maintaining 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 upsetting your family and pets? Hearing your sweater crackle 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 can’t go anywhere, and someone is going to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel more comfortable during the wintertime. Just like a humid day in the summer feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel warmer. Not only will the right humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay warm.
There are numerous more benefits to keeping your home adequately 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 help you with any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns. Give us a call at 928-263-8570.
