Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

Air Quality

We all know the saying, “it’s not the heat, it’s the humidity”, well during the winter months it’s not the heat, it’s your home’s absence of humidity. Humidity is typically to blame for our discomfort during the summer, but a shortage of humidity during the colder months in East Bernard will not only make you uncomfortable it can also have a negative impact on your indoor air quality. The cold weather means you’ll be spending more time indoors, a whole-home humidifier could be the answer you’ve been looking for to improve both your comfort and your health.

Keeping Healthy
Keeping proper humidity levels within your home you can also stop the spread of infection. Without humidity in the air, the mucous membranes throughout your sinuses will dry out and won’t be able to filter out bacteria. Bacteria and viruses that cause the cold and flu have an easier time traveling through dry air, which is why they are so prevalent during the winter months. By maintaining the humidity levels in your home at the correct levels you can expect to feel an improvement in your health throughout the winter.

Combating Static Electricity
If your touches have been zapping your friends and family, you have humidity troubles on your hands. One thing water does is conducts electricity, having moisture in the air gives static charges an exit route to leave an object. If there’s no water in the air, that charge will have nowhere to go except out your fingertips onto the next thing you touch.

More Comfort
A whole-home humidifier can make your East Bernard home feel warmer and more enjoyable this season. Humidity during the winter has the same effect it does during the summer; it makes you feel warmer than it really is. Additional moisture in the house will mean that you won’t have to set the thermostat so high to stay comfy, which could save you money.
