It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only appear to talk about during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully altering your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we fill in our home, particularly when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could greatly enhance your comfort and your health.
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also increases the prevalence of colds and flus in the colder months. 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 all through the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Catching 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 sure to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers allow your home feel hotter 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 correct humidity level keep you at ease, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel cozy you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay warm.
There are numerous more advantages to keeping your home properly 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 respond to any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries. Give us a call at 843-485-0967.
