Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification01/03/2017It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to mention during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively influencing your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we fill in our home, especially when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could significantly improve your comfort and your health. Staying Healthy 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 filter out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the prevalence of colds and flus in the colder months. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time drifting in moist air. Setting your home at optimal humidity could help you continue feeling well all through the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air lets static charges to depart things in the room because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge is stuck where it is, and someone is sure to get shocked.
