It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only appear to talk about during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively affecting your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we spend in our home, particularly when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could greatly upgrade your comfort and your health.
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also increases the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter season. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a harder time drifting in moist air. Setting your home at prime humidity could help you keep on feeling well all through the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been upsetting your family and pets? Catching your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air lets static charges to leave objects because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge is stuck where it is, and someone is sure to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers allow your home feel warmer during the wintertime. Just like a humid day in the summer might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will in fact make you feel more heat. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you at ease, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel cozy you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay warm.
