Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

January 03, 2017

It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to mention during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively altering your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we spend in our home, specifically when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could greatly improve your comfort and your health.

Staying Healthy
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside 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 drifting in moist air. Maintaining your home at ideal humidity could help you carry on feeling well throughout the coming season.

Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Hearing your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air permits static charges to leave items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is bound to get shocked.

Increased Comfort
Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel hotter during the colder seasons. 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 appropriate humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay warm.

There are many more advantages to keeping your home properly humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will increase both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also lower your monthly bills 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 614-344-6949.
