It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to mention during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively affecting your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we spend in our home, specifically when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could really enhance your comfort along with your health.
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air deficient in 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. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a harder time moving in moist air. Maintaining your home at ideal humidity could help you continue feeling well during the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Catching your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air lets static charges to leave items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is sure to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers allow your home feel hotter during the wintertime.

Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you comfortable, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel cozy you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay cozy.
