It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to talk about during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully affecting your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we devote in our home, particularly when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could significantly enhance your comfort and your health.
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the frequency of colds and flus in the winter season. Also, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time moving in moist air. Keeping your home at optimal humidity could help you keep on feeling well throughout the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air permits static charges to ditch things in the room because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge can’t go anywhere, and someone is sure to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel more comfortable during the wintertime. Just like a humid day in the summer seems 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 at ease, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay comfortable.
There are numerous more benefits to keeping your home appropriately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will improve both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also decrease your spending in the process. We’d love to respond to any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries. Give us a call at 714-855-1717.
