It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to talk about during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively affecting your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we fill in our home, particularly when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could really improve your comfort and your health.
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also increases the likelihood of colds and flus in the colder months. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time traveling in moist air. Keeping your home at ideal humidity could help you continue feeling well throughout the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Catching your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air permits static charges to ditch objects because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is going to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers allow your home feel hotter during the colder seasons. Just like a humid day in the summer feels warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel more heat. Not only will the correct humidity level keep you content, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel warmer you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay warm.
There are many more advantages to keeping your home appropriately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will increase both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also help save you money in the process. We’d love to answer any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns. Give us a call at 951-299-9853.
