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 seem to indicate during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively altering your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we devote in our home, specifically when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could greatly upgrade your comfort and your health.

Staying Healthy
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the frequency of colds and flus in the colder months. Also, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time drifting in moist air. Setting your home at ideal humidity could help you continue feeling well throughout the coming season.

Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air permits static charges to depart items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is bound to get shocked.

Increased Comfort
Whole-home humidifiers allow your home feel hotter during the colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel warmer. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also help save you money. If you feel cozy you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay cozy.

There are numerous more benefits to keeping your home properly 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 respond to any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns. Give us a call at (616) 669-3961.
