Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification01/03/2017It’s not the heat, it’s the lack of humidity.

Staying Healthy Having the correct humidity levels in your home can help stop the spread of infection. Air without humidity dries out the mucus membranes within your sinuses, which clean out bacteria. Dry air also adds to the prevalence of colds and flus in the winter time. Also, bacteria and viruses have a harder time traveling in moist air. Keeping your home at ideal humidity could help you continue feeling well during the coming season.
