It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only appear to mention during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively affecting your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we devote in our home, especially when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could greatly improve your comfort along with your health.
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the prevalence of colds and flus in the colder months. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time traveling in moist air. Maintaining your home at optimal 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 upsetting your family and pets? Hearing your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air permits static charges to ditch items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge is stuck where it is, and someone is going to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers allow 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 truly make you feel warmer. Not only will the right humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay warm.
There are numerous 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 inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality apprehensions. Give us a call at 727-369-6195.
