It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to talk about during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully affecting your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we fill in our home, specifically when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could really enhance your comfort along with your health.
Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter season. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a harder time drifting in moist air. Keeping your home at ideal humidity could help you keep on feeling well during the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been upsetting your family and pets? Hearing your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air allows static charges to ditch items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is bound to get shocked.
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 in fact make you feel cozier. Not only will the right humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also help save you money. If you feel cozy you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay comfortable.
There are several more advantages to keeping your home adequately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will increase both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also decrease your spending in the process. We’d love to answer any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries. Give us a call at 772-353-4633.
