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 appear to indicate during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully affecting your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we fill in our home, specifically when it’s in the colder months, 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 prevent the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the likelihood of colds and flus in the colder months. Also, bacteria and viruses have a more difficult time traveling in moist air. Maintaining your home at prime humidity could help you continue feeling well all through the coming season.
