Humidity is something that people only seem to mention during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully altering your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we devote in our home, particularly when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could really enhance your comfort along with 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 filter out bacteria. Dry air also increases the frequency of colds and flus in the winter time. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time moving in moist air. Keeping your home at optimal humidity could help you carry on feeling well all through the coming season.

Ease Static Electricity
Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Listening to your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament.
