It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to mention during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively altering your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we devote in our home, especially when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could significantly improve your comfort and also your health.
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the likelihood of colds and flus in the winter season. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a harder time drifting in moist air. Maintaining your home at optimal 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? Listening to your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air allows static charges to depart items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge is stuck where it is, and someone is sure to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers help your home feel hotter during the wintertime. Just like a humid day in the summer might feel warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will in fact make you feel more heat. Not only will the right humidity level keep you at ease, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel warmer you won’t have to hike up your thermostat to stay comfortable.
