It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only appear to indicate during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively altering your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we devote in our home, particularly when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could greatly improve your comfort along with your health.
Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter time. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a harder time moving in moist air. Maintaining your home at optimal humidity could help you carry 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 crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air permits static charges to leave items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge can’t go anywhere, and someone is sure to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers allow your home feel warmer during the colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer seems warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will in fact make you feel warmer. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you content, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel cozy you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay comfortable.
There are numerous more perks 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 worries. Give us a call at 336-853-6070.
