It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only appear to mention during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively influencing your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we spend in our home, especially when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could really upgrade your comfort along with your health.
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also increases the likelihood of colds and flus in the winter season. Also, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time moving in moist air. Maintaining your home at optimal humidity could help you keep on feeling well throughout the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Catching your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air permits static charges to depart 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 let 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 correct humidity level keep you at ease, it could also help save you money. If you feel warmer you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay warm.
There are numerous more perks to keeping your home adequately 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 answer any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns. Give us a call at 704-233-7363.
