Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to talk about during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively affecting your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we devote in our home, particularly when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could greatly enhance your comfort and also your health.

Staying Healthy
Having the appropriate 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 clean out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the frequency of colds and flus in the winter time. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a harder time drifting in moist air. Keeping your home at prime 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? Hearing your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma. Moisture in the air lets static charges to leave things in the room because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge is stuck where it is, and someone is going to get shocked.

Increased Comfort
Whole-home humidifiers let your home feel hotter during the wintertime. Just like a humid day in the summer seems 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 comfortable, it could also lower your monthly bills. If you feel comfortable you won’t have to crank up your thermostat to stay comfortable.

There are several more benefits to keeping your home properly 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 answer any inquires you may have about humidifiers or any other indoor air quality concerns. Give us a call at 503-376-8806.
