It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to indicate during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively affecting your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we devote in our home, particularly when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could greatly upgrade your comfort and also your health.
Having the correct 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 filter out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the prevalence 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 optimal humidity could help you continue feeling well during the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Catching your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air allows static charges to depart items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is going to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel warmer during the colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer seems warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel warmer. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay warm.
There are several more benefits 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 questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries. Give us a call at 937-845-1111.
