Get Rid of Static Electricity in the Home

There is one fun thing you can do with static electricity. You can rub a balloon on your head and make your hair stand up. Outside of that, static electricity is painful. The cause of static electricity is that the air inside your home is too dry. 

Without any moisture, an electrical charge is allowed to build-up. This can result in static electricity in the home. 

It's more common for these dry conditions to take place in the fall and winter. Our central heating systems will dry out the air dropping the relative humidity in our homes. But air conditioning can do the same as it works to create the ideal temperature in the home. 

So how do you get rid of static electricity? Jump to the next section to see how Aprilaire can help out.
