It’s not the heat, it’s the almost nonexistent humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to mention during the months of heat, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully influencing your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we spend in our home, specifically when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could really improve your comfort along with your health.
Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air lacking in humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also increases the likelihood of colds and flus in the winter time. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a harder time moving in moist air. Maintaining your home at ideal humidity could help you carry on feeling well throughout the coming season.
