My good friend and I are fortunate to have been roommates for nearly a year now. Things kinda worked out in that we started rooming together soon after we began working for the same organization. Busy by trade and hard workers by nature, we have been privileged to have owned our humble abode for just shy of a year, having moved in early last spring. Fast forward to now, winter has suddenly started to rear its head and along with it has a series of somewhat difficult circumstances done the same. Aside from the obvious snow and general cold that tends to go along with the winter season in our neck of the woods, this particular season has brought with it excessively cold temperatures as well as another unexpected aspect: static electricity. Both my roommate and I have experienced static previously in certain respects; however, there is something unique about the form of static that we’ve experienced this season. To deal with it, we soon began looking for solutions, and our search for answers led us to the local heating and cooling company down the street from where we live. In turn, we eventually set an appointment for a home visit. Upon the company sending a team of technicians out, they did a rather brief diagnosis and determined that the best, most cost-saving-but-sufficient measure to be the incorporation of a whole-home humidifier. Initially unsure of their recommendation, we elected to get a second opinion, and the second HVAC company suggested the same thing. As a result, we purchased a humidifier from them, which soon helped our static-related issues.
