It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only appear to mention during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively influencing your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we spend in our home, especially when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could really enhance your comfort and your health.
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter time. Also, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time drifting in moist air. Setting your home at ideal humidity could help you continue feeling well all through the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Catching your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem. Moisture in the air lets static charges to depart items because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge can’t go anywhere, and someone is sure to get shocked.
