It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to talk about during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively altering your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we devote in our home, particularly when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could really enhance your comfort and also your health.
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also increases the frequency of colds and flus in the colder months. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a harder time drifting in moist air. Maintaining your home at prime humidity could help you carry on feeling well during the coming season.
