Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification01/03/2017It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only appear to talk about during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively altering your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we spend in our home, especially when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could greatly improve your comfort and also your health. Staying Healthy Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also increases the frequency of colds and flus in the colder months. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time moving in moist air. Keeping your home at ideal 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 crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament.
