It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only appear to mention during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be negatively altering your indoor air quality and how you feel. As much time as we devote in our home, especially when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could significantly upgrade your comfort along with your health.
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help halt the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also increases the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter time. In addition, bacteria and viruses have a harder time moving in moist air. Maintaining your home at ideal humidity could help you keep on feeling well during the coming season.

Is your hair standing on end? Have you been alarming your family and pets? Catching your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity dilemma.
