You’ve probably heard the saying, “it’s not the heat, it’s the humidity”, well during the winter months it’s not the heat, it’s your home’s absence of humidity. Humidity is normally to blame for our discomfort during the summer, but a lack of humidity during the colder months in Tomball will not only make you uncomfortable it can also adversely affect your indoor air quality. The winter means you’ll be spending more time indoors, a whole-home humidifier could be the answer you’ve been looking for to improve both your comfort and your health.
Sustaining proper humidity levels within your home you can also put a halt to the spread of infection. If your air lacks moisture, the mucous membranes inside your sinuses will dry out and will be unable to filter out bacteria. Bacteria and viruses that lead to the cold and flu have an easier time traveling through dry air, which is why they are so prevalent during the winter months. By maintaining the humidity levels in your home at the optimal levels you can expect to feel an improvement in your health throughout the winter.
Combating Static Electricity
If your touches have been zapping your friends and family, you have a humidity issue on your hands. Being that water conducts electricity, having moisture in the air gives static charges a way to leave an object. If your air lacks moisture, that charge will have no way to escape except out your fingertips onto the next thing you touch.
A whole-home humidifier can make your Tomball home feel more comfortable this season. Humidity during the winter has the same effect it does during the summer; it makes you feel warmer than it actually is. Additional moisture in the house will mean that you won’t have to set the thermostat so high to stay cozy, which could save you money.
