Reducing Static Electricity in Your Home

As we walk around our home, we create an electron imbalance in the air. Cold, dry air along with the indoor moisture level can amplify this effect, which is why those annoying static electricity zaps we get are more common this time of year. Here's how you can control it:

Solution There are products available to reduce static electricity in your home, like a humidifier or dehumidifier depending on where you live and the time of year. Your home should maintain a relative humidity level of 55%. Maintaining the water vapor level in dry winter air helps discharge static electricity by preventing an electron imbalance.

Carpeting is a major source of static shocks. So if you're thinking about purchasing new carpet, there are commercial anti-shock products that can be applied at the factory.

For information on the benefits of humidifiers and dehumidifiers for your home, call 72 Degrees Comfort Company at 515-965-7272 or email us at
