Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

January 03, 2017

It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to indicate during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively influencing your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we fill in our home, specifically when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could really enhance your comfort and your health.

Staying Healthy
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the frequency of colds and flus in the winter time. Also, bacteria and viruses have a harder time moving in moist air. Maintaining your home at ideal humidity could help you carry on 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 crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air permits 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 bound to get shocked.

Increased Comfort
Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel more comfortable during the wintertime. Just like a humid day in the summer seems warmer than it actually is, humidity in the winter will actually make you feel warmer. Not only will the right humidity level keep you content, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay warm.

There are many more benefits to keeping your home appropriately humidified. Our whole-home humidity products will enhance both your indoor air quality and your comfort. They could also lower your monthly bills in the process. We’d love to respond to any questions you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns. Give us a call at 203-357-5913.
