Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

January 03, 2017

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 destructively influencing your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we devote in our home, particularly when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could really improve your comfort and your health.

Staying Healthy
Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the frequency of colds and flus in the winter season. Also, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time traveling in moist air. Maintaining your home at ideal humidity could help you continue 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 crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air allows static charges to depart things in the room because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is going to get shocked.

Increased Comfort
Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel more comfortable during the wintertime. Just like a humid day in the summer seems warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel warmer. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you at ease, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel warmer you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay cozy.

There are numerous more benefits 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 answer any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries. Give us a call at 715-504-0533.
