It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to mention during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively affecting your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we spend in our home, especially when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could significantly improve your comfort and also your health.
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the frequency of colds and flus in the winter season. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time moving in moist air. Setting your home at optimal 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 crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem.
