Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

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 lack of humidity. Humidity is typically to blame for our discomfort during the summer, but a shortage of humidity during the colder months in Alice 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.

Keeping Healthy
Keeping proper humidity levels within your home you can also stop the spread of infection. Without any moisture in the air, the mucous membranes throughout your sinuses will dry out and will have trouble filtering out bacteria. Bacteria and viruses that cause the cold and flu have an easier time traveling through dry air, which is why they are so commonplace during the winter months. By maintaining the humidity levels in your home at the optimal levels you can expect improved health throughout the winter.

Combating Static Electricity
If your touches have been zapping your friends and family, you have a humidity problem on your hands. Because water conducts electricity, having moisture in the air gives static charges an exit route to leave an object. If your air lacks moisture, that charge will have nowhere to go except out your fingertips onto the next thing you touch.

More Comfort
A whole-home humidifier can make your Alice home feel more warm and cozy this season. Humidity during the cooler months 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 comfy, which could save you money.

This is just a few of the benefits of having a properly humidified home. Both your comfort, and your indoor air quality can be enhanced with the installation of one of our whole-home humidity products.
