Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to mention during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively affecting 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 really enhance your comfort along with your health.

Staying Healthy
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also increases the frequency of colds and flus in the winter season. Also, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time moving in moist air. Maintaining your home at optimal humidity could help you carry on feeling well during 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 allows static charges to depart objects because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge can’t go anywhere, and someone is sure to get shocked.

Increased Comfort
Whole-home humidifiers help 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 right humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay cozy.

There are several more benefits to keeping your home appropriately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will enhance 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 uncertainties you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries.
