Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

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 negatively altering your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we fill in our home, particularly when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could significantly improve your comfort along with your health.

Staying Healthy
Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air without 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. Also, bacteria and viruses have a harder time drifting in moist air. Setting your home at ideal humidity could help you carry on feeling well throughout the coming season.

Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Hearing your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air permits static charges to depart objects because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is sure to get shocked.

Increased Comfort
Whole-home humidifiers allow your home feel hotter during the winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel more heat. Not only will the right humidity level keep you content, it could also help save you money. If you feel warmer you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay comfortable.

There are several more perks to keeping your home appropriately 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 uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality apprehensions.
