It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity. Humidity is something that people only appear to indicate during the summer, but lack of humidity in your home could be harmfully affecting your indoor air quality and your comfort. As much time as we devote in our home, particularly when it’s cold outside, a whole-home humidifier could greatly improve your comfort along with your health.
Having the proper humidity levels in your home can help prevent the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes in your sinuses, which filter out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the likelihood of colds and flus in the colder months. Also, bacteria and viruses have a harder time drifting in moist air. Setting your home at ideal humidity could help you carry on feeling well during the coming season.
