Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification01/03/2017It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to mention during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively affecting your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we spend in our home, specifically when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could really improve your comfort and also your health. Staying Healthy Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also increases the likelihood of colds and flus in the colder months. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time drifting in moist air. Setting your home at optimal humidity could help you keep on feeling well throughout the coming season.
