Tune up your indoor air quality to alleviate a plethora of winter health issues.
Do you feel like you wake up with a sinus infection every winter morning, which then seems to miraculously cure itself when you leave for work? This is probably no coincidence. The culprit is certainly not germs; in fact, your home's indoor air quality is probably to blame.
Think about it: it's winter, and you are constantly trying to stay warm inside and keep the cold air out. All of the windows and doors are closed up tight, and the furnace is running all day and night. Perhaps you have a wood burning stove or fireplace that you use to boost your warmth and comfort in the evening. The air inside your home is likely dusty, stale, and dry. That's probably the real reason why you wake up congested every morning.
What can be done about that?
A great first step toward improving indoor air quality is having a humidifier installed that will run along with your furnace. Dry indoor air can cause dry, painful sinuses, and nosebleeds, sore throats, and aggravate asthma and allergy symptoms. Viruses prefer a dry environment, which is part of the reason why the flu and colds run rampant in the winter. But all of these issues can be alleviated with a whole home humidifier.
A whole home humidifier can be programmed to run whenever your furnace runs and will keep the house at a set humidity level. It really is that easy to get rid of your morning congestion, not to mention dry, itchy skin and static electricity build-up.
