Ask Furr: Why Is My House Dry? There’s A Static Electricity Overload!

"Why Is My House So Dry?"-Question Submitted by Sandra W. South Riding, VA

It’s that time of year again! The time when touching a door handle can give you a jolt of static shock, and your hair provides enough electricity to power a lightbulb. If you and your family are tentatively touching metal, and using Static Guard on everything, you are experiencing these events because the air in your home is overly dry. It might be time to consider a Home Humidifier to wipe out that desert feeling. Your home should have a humidity of about 30% to 35% when the weather is cold. This amount of moisture in the air will keep your home comfortable. Unfortunately, it isn’t always easy to choose the right humidifier for your home. Here are a few tips on finding a humidifier to put a healthy amount of moisture back into the air!

There are several humidifier options out there today, namely the Bypass, Power, and Steam. The trick is finding which of these options is the best choice for your home and budget. It’s best to consider facts about the humidifiers as well as your home before making a decision on one.
