It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to talk about during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively affecting your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we fill in our home, specifically when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could greatly improve your comfort along with your health.
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter season. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time moving in moist air. Maintaining your home at optimal humidity could help you continue feeling well during the coming season.

Is your hair standing on end? Have you been shocking your family and pets? Hearing your sweater pop as you put it on? You may have a humidity predicament.
