If it’s becoming a common occurrence to feel an electric shock when you touch something or someone in your home, it may be time to address the situation. Fortunately, combating static electricity in a residence is something that anyone can do.
Add Moisture to the Air
The first thing you can do is install a humidifier. Smaller humidifiers can work in particular rooms, but these devices will require being frequently refilled with water. If you’d prefer to have a more convenient and comprehensive solution, consider getting a whole-home humidifier. At Summit Heating & A/C, installing humidifiers is one of the services we offer to our customers in Denver. Since our climate is dry during most months and seasons, our team performs this work year-round. We consider it a subset of maintaining good indoor air quality.
In addition to addressing the static electricity situation, humidifiers can:
- Relieve irritated eyes
- Keep skin and hair from drying out
- Reduce allergy and asthma symptoms
- Help reduce coughing and cold symptoms
There are also smaller things you can do to help reduce static electricity in your home, though these may not be as effective as adding a humidifier to your HVAC system. First, select a few interior plants that you like. Houseplants can release moisture into the air while cleaning it at the same time. Adding a few plants can make a difference in a particular room while dressing up space with some greenery.
Second, some manufactures make an antistatic spray. You can use this product on your carpets and upholstered surfaces like couches and chairs. To achieve the maximum impact, it’s recommended that you apply it frequently. If you have questions about which spray might work well for you, the team at Summit Heating & A/C would be happy to discuss the topic.
