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 appear to mention 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 devote in our home, especially when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could greatly upgrade your comfort and your health.

Staying Healthy
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the frequency of colds and flus in the winter season. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time moving in moist air. Setting your home at prime humidity could help you carry on feeling well throughout the coming season.

Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been upsetting your family and pets? Hearing your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air lets static charges to leave objects because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge is stuck where it is, and someone is bound to get shocked.

Increased Comfort
Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel more comfortable during the colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will in fact 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 cozy you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay warm.

There are many more benefits to keeping your home adequately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will increase both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also help save you money in the process. We’d love to respond to any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns. Give us a call at 319-229-2318.
