Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

January 03, 2017

It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to talk about during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively altering your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we spend in our home, especially when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could significantly upgrade your comfort along with your health.

Staying Healthy
Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also increases the likelihood of colds and flus in the winter season. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time traveling in moist air. Setting your home at ideal humidity could help you keep on feeling well all through the coming season.

Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been upsetting your family and pets? Catching your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air permits static charges to leave things in the room because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is sure to get shocked.

Increased Comfort
Whole-home humidifiers let 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 cozier. Not only will the right humidity level keep you at ease, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel warmer you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay comfortable.
