Stop the Static and Humidify Your Air Published on December 28, 2016 This season, most families are doing anything they can to keep their home warm and toasty. The problem is, the warmer your air, the drier. Not only can this cause issues with your health, like drying out your nasal passages or aggravating respiratory illnesses, it could also worsen the static electricity in your home. Does any of this sound familiar? Mountainwest Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a solution: a whole-home humidifier! Not convinced a whole-home humidifier is right for you? Read these reasons why it’s worth the cost. Dry Air = Harder to Breathe As we mentioned, dry air can dry out your nasal passages and irritate respiratory illnesses. Installing a whole-home humidifier for your heating and cooling system can help clear your sinuses, moisturize your nasal passages, and improve your breathing. Healthy Air, Healthy You Like we said, adding moisture to the air is great for your health. Whole-home humidifiers help lower your risk of sickness because viruses and bacteria do not live in moist air. Silky Smooth Skin Do you go through way more moisturizing products in the winter? It’s a result of the dry air drying out your skin, creating itchy, dull skin. Adding moisture with the help of a humidifier will help keep your skin smooth 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 can also help decrease snoring and, in many cases, eliminate it altogether. Ah, a good night’s sleep, finally! Luscious Lips Okay, you get it. Humidifiers add moisture and that’s a way to improve your health. But it’s also a plus for your lips! Do you have rough, peeling lips throughout 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 help your health – it helps your wallet. Adding moisture to the air typically helps your home feel warmer at a lower temperature, lowering your heating costs. What’s better than that? Stop the Static The dry cool air can cause more static. Is your family getting shocked more lately? A humidifier makes the air less dry and decreases your chance of being shocked at home. Silky skin, healthy airways, and saving money? What’s not to love?
