It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to talk about during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully influencing your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we spend in our home, especially when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could significantly enhance your comfort along with your health.
Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the frequency of colds and flus in the winter season. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time moving in moist air. Maintaining your home at prime humidity could help you keep on 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 predicament. Moisture in the air allows static charges to ditch items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge can’t go anywhere, and someone is going to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel hotter during the winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel more heat. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel warmer you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay cozy.
There are numerous more advantages to keeping your home appropriately 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 uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries. Give us a call at 505-445-1250.
