It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only seem to talk about 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 spend in our home, especially when it’s in the colder months, a whole-home humidifier could significantly upgrade your comfort and your health.
Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air deficient in humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also increases the frequency of colds and flus in the winter season. Also, bacteria and viruses have a harder time drifting in moist air. Setting your home at optimal humidity could help you carry on feeling well during the coming season.

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