Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification01/03/2017It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to talk about during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively influencing your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we spend in our home, particularly when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could really enhance your comfort along with 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 within your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the frequency of colds and flus in the colder months. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a harder time drifting in moist air. Setting your home at optimal humidity could help you continue feeling well throughout the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Catching your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air lets static charges to leave things in the room because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge is stuck where it is, and someone is bound to get shocked.
