It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to talk about during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively affecting your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we fill in our home, specifically when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could really improve your comfort and your health.
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also increases the frequency of colds and flus in the winter season. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time moving in moist air. Maintaining your home at optimal humidity could help you carry on feeling well during the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air permits static charges to ditch items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge is stuck where it is, and someone is bound 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 truly make you feel more heat. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also help save you money. If you feel cozy you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay cozy.
There are several more perks to keeping your home properly humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will improve both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also lower your monthly bills in the process. We’d love to answer any uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns. Give us a call at 724-370-0141.
