Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

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 harmfully affecting your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we spend in our home, particularly when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could greatly enhance your comfort and also your health.

Staying Healthy
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also increases the frequency of colds and flus in the winter time. 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 crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. 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 is stuck where it is, and someone is going to get shocked.

Increased Comfort
Whole-home humidifiers allow your home feel hotter during the colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel cozier. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you at ease, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay comfortable.

There are many 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 help save you money in the process. We’d love to respond to any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality apprehensions. Give us a call at 309-323-9584.
