Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

January 03, 2017

It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only appear to talk about during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully altering your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we spend in our home, particularly when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could greatly improve your comfort and your health.

Staying Healthy
Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter season. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a harder time drifting in moist air. Keeping your home at optimal humidity could help you carry on feeling well throughout the coming season.

Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air lets static charges to depart objects because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is sure to get shocked.

Increased Comfort
