Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

January 03, 2017

It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only appear to indicate during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively altering your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we fill in our home, specifically when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could greatly improve your comfort along with your health.

Staying Healthy
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help halt 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 frequency of colds and flus in the winter time. Also, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time drifting in moist air. Keeping your home at ideal humidity could help you keep on feeling well during the coming season.

Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crackle 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 bound to get shocked.

Increased Comfort
Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel warmer during the colder seasons. 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 cozier. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay cozy.

There are many more perks to keeping your home adequately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will enhance both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also decrease your spending in the process. We’d love to help you with any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries. Give us a call at 478-202-3076.
