Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

Air Quality

We all know the saying, “it’s not the heat, it’s the humidity”, well during the winter months it’s not the heat, it’s your home’s absence of humidity. Humidity is typically to blame for our discomfort during the summer, but a absence of humidity during the colder months in Macon will not only make you uncomfortable it can also negatively affect your indoor air quality. As you’ll probably be spending more time indoors this season, a whole-home humidifier could be the answer you’ve been looking for to improve both your comfort and your health.

Keeping Healthy
Keeping proper humidity levels within your home you can also put a halt to the spread of infection. Without humidity in the air, the mucous membranes inside your sinuses will dry out and won’t be able to filter out bacteria. Bacteria and viruses that are the source of the cold and flu have an easier time traveling through dry air, which is why they are so prevalent during the winter months. By maintaining the humidity levels in your home at the optimal levels you can expect to feel a lot better throughout the winter.

Combating Static Electricity
If your touches have been zapping your friends and family, you have a humidity issue on your hands. Being that water conducts electricity, having moisture in the air gives static charges a way to leave an object. If your air lacks moisture, that charge will have nowhere to go except out your fingertips onto the next thing you touch.

More Comfort
A whole-home humidifier can make your Macon home feel more warm and cozy this season. Humidity during the winter has the same effect it does during the summer; it makes you feel warmer than it actually is. The additional humidity in the house will mean that you won’t have to set the thermostat so high to stay comfortable, which could save you money.

This is just a few of the benefits of having an appropriately humidified home. Both your comfort, and your indoor air quality can be positively impacted with the installation of one of our whole-home humidity products.
