It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only appear to talk about during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively influencing your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we fill in our home, particularly when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could really upgrade 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 within your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the likelihood of colds and flus in the winter time. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a harder time drifting in moist air. Keeping your home at ideal humidity could help you keep on feeling well throughout the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been upsetting your family and pets? Listening to your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air allows static charges to ditch objects because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge can’t go anywhere, and someone is bound 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 warmer. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you content, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel warmer you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay warm.
There are several more perks to keeping your home properly humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will improve both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also decrease your spending in the process. We’d love to answer any uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries. Give us a call at 209-257-3156.
