Why Are Humidifiers Important?
Studies have shown that our immune system functions better when humidity is at a properly balanced level within the home. The right amount of humidification can help support the overall quality of indoor air. Humidification decreases the negative effects of overly dry air, assisting your body’s immune system in defending itself against dryness, dehydration, and the impact of bacteria.
In dry fall and winter months, the spread of mold, bacteria, and viruses run rampant in lower humidity levels. The dry, heated air allows viral molecules to move about freely and furiously, thus being easily inhaled by you and your family. In the spring and summer months, humidity tends to be higher, which actually assists in the slowing and spreading of viruses, such as influenza.
With humidity in your home’s indoor air, viral molecules bump up against water found in moisture and drop down to the surfaces found in your home. By simply keeping these surfaces clean and germ-free, you are far better protected than having the molecules floating aimlessly throughout the air.
What Are Other Benefits of Humidification?
- Lower heating bills: In colder winter months, humidifiers may provide substantial energy savings with continued use. Indoor air will feel warmer with the proper level of humidity so you can turn your thermostat down a few degrees. With the right amount of humidity, you’ll still feel the same, while saving money on your heating bills.
- More comfort: Overly dry air dries out the skin and hair and may keep your nasal passages and mouth dried out too. It can also create static where friction charges up annoying electrical shocks. Humidifiers also help protect wood furniture and other items that dry out from lack of moisture.
- Eco-friendly: Humidifiers installed by Gillece Services efficiently and automatically monitor the dryness in your home, and only use water and air through the system only when humidity is needed so nothing is wasted.
