Static shock is an effect of dry air. To reduce static shock, you need to add moisture to the air in your home.
In addition to reduced comfort, failure to reduce static shock can also be costly. Electronic equipment can fall victim to static electricity charges, requiring expensive repair or replacement.
Luckily, your family doesn't have to live with static electricity.

"Humidifiers are commonly used in homes to relieve the physical discomforts of dry nose, throat, lips, and skin. The moisture they add to dry air also helps alleviate common nuisances brought on by winter heating, such as static electricity, splitting woodwork, and cracks in paint and furniture." -U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
