It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to indicate during the warmer seasons, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively influencing your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we fill in our home, particularly when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could significantly enhance your comfort and also your health.
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also increases the frequency of colds and flus in the winter time. Also, bacteria and viruses have a harder time moving in moist air. Setting your home at prime humidity could help you continue feeling well throughout the coming season.
