Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to mention during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively influencing your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we devote in our home, specifically when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could significantly upgrade your comfort along with your health.

Staying Healthy
Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also increases the likelihood of colds and flus in the colder months. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a harder time drifting in moist air. Setting 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 upsetting your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air allows static charges to depart things in the room because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge can’t go anywhere, and someone is bound to get shocked.

Increased Comfort
Whole-home humidifiers allow your home feel hotter during the colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer seems warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will truly make you feel warmer. Not only will the appropriate humidity level keep you content, it could also help save you money. If you feel warmer you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay warm.

There are several more perks to keeping your home appropriately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will increase both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also lower your monthly bills in the process. We’d love to answer any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns. Give us a call at 925-233-6238.
