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 talk about during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively influencing your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we devote in our home, particularly when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could greatly 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 in your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter time. Also, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time traveling in moist air. Setting your home at optimal humidity could help you continue feeling well during 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 problem. 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 allow your home feel hotter during the winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel cozier. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay cozy.

There are several more advantages to keeping your home properly 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 help you with any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns. Give us a call at 847-362-0262.
