It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only appear to mention during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully affecting your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we spend in our home, especially when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could really improve your comfort along with your health.
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also increases the likelihood of colds and flus in the colder months. Also, bacteria and viruses have a tougher time drifting in moist air. Setting your home at prime humidity could help you carry on feeling well during the coming season.
