Stop the Static and Humidify Your Air Published on December 28, 2016 This season, most people are doing whatever they can to keep their home warm and toasty. There’s a problem though - the warmer your air, the drier. Not only can this cause negative effects to your health, like drying out your nasal passages or increasing respiratory illnesses, it could also increase the static electricity in your home. Does any of this sound familiar? Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a solution: a whole-home humidifier! Not sure a whole-home humidifier is a good choice for you? Read these reasons why it’s worth the investment. Dry Air = Harder to Breathe As we stated, dry air can dry out your nasal passages and exacerbate respiratory sicknesses. Installing a whole-home humidifier for your heating and air conditioning system can help clear your sinuses, moisturize your nasal passages, and improve your breathing. Healthy Air, Healthy You Like we already told you, adding moisture to your home’s air is ideal for your health. Whole-home humidifiers help reduce your risk of illness because viruses and bacteria do not live in moist air. Silky Smooth Skin Do you use way more moisturizing products in the winter? It’s due to the dry air drying out your skin, creating itchy, dull skin. Adding moisture through a humidifier will help keep your skin soft and prevent the dry, flaky skin that tends to come with winter. Sayonara Snoring Since humidifiers add moisture to the nasal passages and respiratory systems, they could also help decrease snoring and, in certain cases, do away with it altogether. Ah, a good night’s sleep, finally! Luscious Lips Okay, you get it. Humidifiers put out moisture and that’s a way to improve your health. But it’s also a good thing for your lips! Do you have chapped, peeling lips during the winter? Yes, you guessed it – a humidifier can help give moisture to those ruby reds. Save on Energy Bills A whole-home humidifier doesn’t just add to your health – it adds to your wallet. Adding moisture to the air usually helps your home feel warmer at a lower temperature, lowering your heating costs. What could be better? Stop the Static The dry winter air can cause more static.
