It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to indicate during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively affecting your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we fill in our home, specifically when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could significantly improve your comfort and also your health.
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also intensifies the frequency of colds and flus in the winter time. Also, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time drifting in moist air. Setting your home at prime humidity could help you continue feeling well all through the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been upsetting your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air allows static charges to ditch objects because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge can’t go anywhere, and someone is going to get shocked.
Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel warmer during the winter months. 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 warmer. Not only will the right humidity level keep you content, it could also decrease your spending. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to increase your thermostat to stay warm.
