It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to indicate during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully influencing your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we fill in our home, particularly when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could significantly enhance your comfort along with your health.
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the frequency of colds and flus in the colder months. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time traveling in moist air. Maintaining your home at ideal humidity could help you continue feeling well during the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been upsetting your family and pets? Catching your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air allows static charges to ditch objects 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 let your home feel warmer during the wintertime. Just like a humid day in the summer might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel more heat. Not only will the right humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel warmer you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay comfortable.
There are many more perks to keeping your home appropriately 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 help you with any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries. Give us a call at 520-201-3871.
