It’s not the heat, it’s the lack 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 destructively affecting your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we devote in our home, specifically when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could really enhance your comfort and also your health.
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air without 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 colder months. Also, bacteria and viruses have a harder time moving in moist air. Keeping your home at prime humidity could help you keep on feeling well throughout the coming season.
Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Catching your sweater crackle as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament. Moisture in the air permits static charges to depart objects because water conducts electricity; with no water in the air the charge has nowhere to go, and someone is bound to get shocked.
