Every year pets across the nation are forced to suffer being shocked by their owners. You know you have a problem when your poor pooch flinches when you go to pet it. Stop shocking your pets by reducing the static electricity in your home with humidity control.
Cold winter weather can cause your home to become as dry as a desert. Not only does it contribute to increased static electricity, but it can wreak havoc on our homes and our bodies. Dry air causes our homes wood floors, trim, and furniture to warp and crack. Carpet and upholstery break down quicker and produce more dust. If you have a musician in the family they will undoubtedly notice that it is more difficult to keep any wood instrument, like a piano or guitar, in tune.
The lack of humidity causes our skin get itchy and cracked. Our sinuses also dry and crack leaving us more susceptible to viruses that thrive in low humidity conditions. Dry air can also aggravate allergy and asthma issues. Sore throats, itchy eyes, and bloody noses are also common.
Dry air can also lead to an increase in your electric bill. Low humidity causes us to feel cold at normal temperatures and then we turn up the thermostat, which leads to higher electricity usage.
Do Fido, Mrs. Whiskers, and yourself a favor and tame your static electricity with humidity control. During the entire month of February we are offering our Aprilaire whole house humidifiers at significantly reduced prices.
