We are rapidly approaching the winter months. This means more time inside our homes as the days get shorter and darker, as the sun starts setting at 5 pm. As we enter November, the temperatures will begin to plummet, and you'll start to heat your home. Have you ever considered the quality of the air inside of your home, especially during the winter months?
A home's humidity level has a direct impact on heating and cooling. How much moisture there is in the air influences our perception of how warm or cold we feel. Heat holds more water than cold, so high humidity can make it challenging to keep a home comfortable on a hot summer day. In the winter, it's harder to make a dwelling feel warm and cozy because cooler air has less moisture.
It is essential to keep constant moisture in your home (between forty to fifty percent) during the winter months as this will help improve air quality for you and your family. Low humidity in your home can lead to dry skin, static in carpets and bedding, excessive dust, mold, bacteria, and even viruses. To see more information about humidifier specials, click here.
