Stop All the Holiday Static!

The holidays are just around the corner and you’re taking stock of your home’s interior, cleaning and getting ready for holiday decorating and company, both expected and unexpected guests.Stop All the Holiday Static! Schneller Cincinnati.jpg

There’s a problem that’s been gnawing at you, though, and it has nothing to do with how your house looks. It has to do with how dry it is inside. On cold days, it can feel like the Sahara! Here’s what all that dry air can do to you and your company and what you can do to stop the holiday static — electricity, that is!

Is It Me or Is It Dry in Here?

No, you’re not imagining things. Dry air is uncomfortable air. It fills your hair and clothes with static electricity, makes your throat scratchy, your eyes itchy, and your thirst unquenchable. And it seems like you’re always cold, even when you turn up the thermostat a few degrees.

What’s more, you keep getting little static electricity shocks whenever you grab a doorknob!

Your home is feeling the effects of the “desert” atmosphere too. Your furniture looks parched, your wood floors are creaking, and your houseplants can’t seem to get enough water — they’re always dry!

Relative humidity in your home during the winter can be as low as 10-15%. To put that in context, the relative humidity in the actual Sahara desert is 25%! Your house is drier than a desert! No wonder you’re so uncomfortable!

Stop All the Holiday Static! Schneller Cincinnati Dead Plant.jpgThe Simple Solution

Call the indoor air experts at Schneller  and have us install a humidifier directly to your heating system. You’ll be amazed at the difference! You’ll be able to breathe again. You’ll stop getting shocks, and your hardwood floors will stop creaking. You can set the humidifier  to the desired humidity level (around 40%), and it will keep your home at that level constantly. Of course, you could buy humidifiers for every room in the house, but that can get expensive and requires constant maintenance, not to mention the unsightliness of the humidifiers themselves.

In the Cincinnati region, call the experts at Schneller & Knochelmann Plumbing, Heating & Air at 513-407-4424 or 859-757-1877 or contact us online to schedule an appointment. We’ll install a humidifier and even tune up your heating system, if it needs it!
