Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to indicate 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 really upgrade your comfort and your health.

Staying Healthy
Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air deficient in 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 winter season. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a harder time traveling in moist air. Maintaining your home at optimal humidity could help you continue feeling well throughout the coming season.

Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been upsetting your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air allows static charges to ditch items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge is stuck where it is, and someone is sure to get shocked.

Increased Comfort
Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel warmer during the colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel cozier. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you at ease, it could also help save you money. If you feel cozy you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay warm.

There are many more advantages to keeping your home appropriately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will enhance both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also lower your monthly bills in the process. We’d love to answer any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns. Give us a call at 319-229-2318.
