Have you noticed the dryness in the air quality of your home, the increased static electricity, dry skin and hair, more creaking floors, doors hard to open, or rising electric bills?
Of course you have! Most everyone does during the long, cold winter months. Just like it is natural and seasonal for the temperature to drop during these times, the humidity in our environment generally does the same thing.
Unlike bundling up with winter coats and outdoor gear, or setting that furnace to keep us toasty as we rest indoors, most people don’t do anything about their home’s humidity levels, and low humidity can lead to a host of problems. In fact, you’re already suffering from many of them. Here are just a few:
- Dry skin and hair
- Higher utility costs
- Increased susceptibility to colds
- Static electricity
- Thriving viruses and germs
- Splitting wood floors and furniture
