Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to talk about during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively affecting your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we devote in our home, particularly when it’s in the colder months, 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 stop the spread of infection. Air deficient in 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. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a harder time drifting in moist air. Maintaining your home at optimal 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? Listening to 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 can’t go anywhere, and someone is bound to get shocked.

Increased Comfort
Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel warmer during the winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will in fact make you feel more heat. Not only will the right humidity level keep you content, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel cozy you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay cozy.

There are several 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 lower your monthly bills in the process. We’d love to respond to any uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries.
