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 mention during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully affecting your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we devote in our home, especially when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could greatly upgrade your comfort and also your health.

Staying Healthy
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the likelihood of colds and flus in the winter time. Also, bacteria and viruses have a harder time drifting in moist air. Maintaining your home at prime humidity could help you continue feeling well throughout the coming season.

Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. 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 is stuck where it is, and someone is sure 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 seems warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel warmer. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you content, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay warm.

There are many more benefits to keeping your home properly humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will increase both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also lower your monthly bills in the process. We’d love to answer any uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns. Give us a call at 815-410-1128.
