Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

Air Quality

You’ve probably heard 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 normally to blame for our discomfort during the summer, but a absence of humidity during the colder months in Dallas and Atlanta surrounding areas will not only make you uncomfortable it can also adversely affect your indoor air quality. As you’ll probably be spending more time indoors this season, a whole-home humidifier could be exactly what you need to improve both your comfort and your health.

Keeping Healthy
Sustaining proper humidity levels within your home you can also put a halt to the spread of infection. Without humidity in the air, the mucous membranes within your sinuses will dry out and will have trouble filtering out bacteria. Bacteria and viruses that lead to 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 improved health throughout the winter.

Combating Static Electricity
If your touches have been zapping your friends and family, you have a humidity problem on your hands. Being that water conducts electricity, having moisture in the air gives static charges a path to leave an object. If there’s no moisture 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 Dallas and Atlanta surrounding areas home feel warmer and more enjoyable this season. Humidity during the cooler months has the same effect it does during the summer; it makes you feel warmer than it actually is. The additional humidity in the house will mean that you won’t have to set the thermostat so high to stay comfy, which could save you money.
