It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only appear to talk about during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively affecting your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we fill in our home, specifically when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could really enhance your comfort and also your health.
Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also increases the likelihood of colds and flus in the colder months. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a harder time moving in moist air. Setting your home at prime humidity could help you keep on feeling well during the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crunch 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 going to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers allow your home feel warmer during the winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will in fact make you feel more heat. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you content, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay warm.
There are several more benefits to keeping your home properly 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 540-369-3790.
