The air you breathe inside your home is filled with visible and non-visible contaminants. These particles are the cause of poor indoor air quality. Every time you clean or vacuum, you increase the amount of pollution in your air. Given the amount of time spent indoors (about 90% of adult life), many suffer from allergies, asthma or other respiratory illnesses.
Heating your home dries out the air inside. The dry air affects many things in your home such as wood, fabrics, paper, and plastics. But most importantly, your skin. Itchy dry skin, dry nose and throat, static shock, and feeling cold are some of the discomfort you can experience. Curtains, rugs, wood floors, furniture, and stairs suffer as well by becoming brittle, fraying, warping, creaking, and cracking due to lack of proper moisture. Proper humidity is a big factor to staying healthy in the colder months. Dry nose and throats make you more at risk of bleeding, infections, bacteria, and viruses. Humidification can save you on your heating bill by allowing you to feel warmer at lower temperature. In the winter cold, you want Florida heat not Arizona heat.
