It’s not the heat, it’s the absence of humidity. Humidity is something that people only look to indicate during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be destructively altering your indoor air quality and your ease. As much time as we devote in our home, particularly when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could greatly improve your comfort and also your health.
Having the proper 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 adds to the frequency of colds and flus in the colder months. Furthermore, bacteria and viruses have a harder time moving in moist air. Keeping 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? Listening to your sweater crunch as you put it on? You may have a humidity problem.
