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 destructively influencing your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we devote in our home, particularly when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could greatly improve your comfort and your health.
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the frequency of colds and flus in the winter season. Also, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time drifting in moist air. Keeping your home at optimal humidity could help you carry on feeling well all through the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Hearing your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air allows static charges to leave items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge can’t go anywhere, and someone is bound to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers allow your home feel warmer during the winter months. Just like a humid day in the summer seems 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 help save you money. If you feel cozy you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay cozy.
There are several more perks to keeping your home adequately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will improve both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also decrease your spending in the process. We’d love to help you with any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality worries. Give us a call at 314-262-4541.
