It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to mention during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively altering your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we spend in our home, especially when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could greatly enhance your comfort along with 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 increases the frequency of colds and flus in the winter time. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time moving 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 alarming your family and pets? Listening to your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. 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 can’t go anywhere, and someone is sure to get shocked.
