Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

January 03, 2017

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 destructively influencing your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we spend in our home, specifically when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could really 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 deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also increases the likelihood of colds and flus in the colder months. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time drifting in moist air. Setting your home at optimal humidity could help you continue feeling well throughout the coming season.

Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Hearing your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. 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 has nowhere to go, and someone is sure to get shocked.

Increased Comfort
Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel hotter 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 warmer. Not only will the right humidity level keep you content, it could also help save you money. If you feel cozy you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay warm.

There are numerous more benefits to keeping your home adequately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will enhance 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 apprehensions.
