Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

January 03, 2017

It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to talk about during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively altering your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we fill in our home, particularly when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could greatly enhance your comfort along with your health.

Staying Healthy
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the likelihood of colds and flus in the colder months. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time moving in moist air. Maintaining your home at prime 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? Hearing your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air allows static charges to leave objects because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is going to get shocked.

Increased Comfort
Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel more comfortable during the winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel warmer. Not only will the right humidity level keep you at ease, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel warmer you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay warm.

There are numerous more perks to keeping your home adequately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will enhance both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also help save you money in the process. We’d love to help you with any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns. Give us a call at 361-265-4371.
