Helping Minimize Airborne Illness
Did you know? Most viruses have the same basic needs as us. They survive better in temperatures and humidity levels that we find comfortable. You may wonder why in Michiana, it seems people get sick more during the winter months. The reason is simple: the air, especially inside, is much drier. This dry air tends to cause our throats and nasal passages to become dry and crack, providing an immediate pathway into our systems. That is why we develop a running nose and congestion which captures these little enemies so they may be dealt with in our stomach acid. A humidifier will not only reduce static electricity in your home, protect antiques and other wood furnishings and floors, but also help prevent the damage that lets viruses into your system. If that doesn’t convince you, then consider the fact that moisture in the air increases the temperature you “feel”. We find most people are able to lower the temperature in their home and STILL be comfortable, saving them more on their gas bill than the cost of the humidifier!
