It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only appear to indicate 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, specifically when it’s wintertime, a whole-home humidifier could really upgrade your comfort and also your health.
Having the appropriate humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes inside your sinuses, which sift out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the likelihood of colds and flus in the winter time. Also, bacteria and viruses have a harder time drifting in moist air. Maintaining your home at ideal humidity could help you carry on feeling well during the coming season.
