Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

Air Quality

We all know the saying, “it’s not the heat, it’s the humidity”, well during the winter months it’s not the heat, it’s your home’s lack of humidity. Humidity is typically to blame for our discomfort during the summer, but a lack of humidity during the colder months in Marshfield will not only make you uncomfortable it can also have a negative impact on your indoor air quality. The cold weather means you’ll be spending more time indoors, a whole-home humidifier could be exactly what you need to improve both your comfort and your health.

Keeping Healthy
By maintaining the proper humidity levels within your home you can also stop the spread of infection. If your air lacks moisture, the mucous membranes inside your sinuses will dry out and won’t be able to filter out bacteria. Bacteria and viruses that are the source of the cold and flu have an easier time traveling through dry air, which is why they are so prevalent during the winter months. By maintaining the humidity levels in your home at the proper levels you can expect to feel a lot better throughout the winter.

Combating Static Electricity
If your touches have been zapping your friends and family, you have humidity troubles on your hands. Being that water conducts electricity, having moisture in the air gives static charges an exit route to leave an object. If there’s no water in the air, that charge will have nowhere to go except out your fingertips onto the next thing you touch.

More Comfort
A whole-home humidifier can make your Marshfield home feel more comfortable this season. Humidity during the winter has the same effect it does during the summer; it makes you feel warmer than it actually is. Having additional humidity in the house will mean that you won’t have to set the thermostat so high to stay cozy, which could save you money.

This is just a few of the benefits of having an appropriately humidified home. Both your comfort, and your indoor air quality can be positively impacted with the installation of one of our whole-home humidity products.
