Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification01/03/2017It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to indicate during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively altering your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we fill in our home, particularly when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could greatly improve your comfort and your health. Staying Healthy Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also increases the frequency of colds and flus in the winter time. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time drifting in moist air. Setting your home at prime humidity could help you continue feeling well during the coming season. Ease Static Electricity Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Listening to your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air lets static charges to depart objects because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge is stuck where it is, and someone is going to get shocked.
