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 look to mention during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively altering your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we devote in our home, especially when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could significantly improve your comfort and also your health. Staying Healthy Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter time. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time traveling in moist air. Maintaining your home at prime humidity could help you keep on feeling well during 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 ditch items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is going to get shocked.
