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 look to indicate during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively influencing your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we fill in our home, particularly when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could greatly enhance your comfort and also your health.

Staying Healthy
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the frequency of colds and flus in the winter time. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time drifting in moist air. Maintaining your home at ideal 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 pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air lets 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 winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer seems warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel cozier. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you at ease, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel warmer you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay cozy.
