Does the cat take off running in a blind panic when you try to pet it? Does the dog cower in the corner when you approach with your hand out? Are your children afraid to hug you? You’re baffled by this behavior. You did the standard blow in your hand and check for bad breath test. You’re using the same deodorant you’ve always used with no complaints about, you know, body odor. What you are probably dealing with is a severe case of FOSE (Fear of static electricity).
Okay, we just made up that acronym, but the problem is real. Dry winter air can, and does, lead to some shocking experiences for pets and people alike. The best, and really only, way to attack the problem is by adding humidity to the air in your home. Here’s the really good news: This month you can win a free home humidifier ($600 value) from Kotz Heating, Cooling & Plumbing.
You can register to win at the Kotz Showroom at 5806 Dixie Highway in Waterford, Michigan. We will have a delicious, freshly-baked cookie waiting for you when you come through the door. We like to announce our monthly showroom giveaway winner on our Facebook page. Make sure to follow us to learn if you are the winner.
The annoyance from static electricity shocks are real, but it’s certainly not the only reason to consider adding an air humidifier to your home:
- Help eliminate dry nasal passages and scratchy throats
- Protect valuable belongings like furniture & artwork
- Keep wood floors & woodwork from getting too dry and cracking
Additionally, adding humidity is a good way to improve your indoor air quality. The air you breathe will be healthier because studies consistently show viruses, like the flu, spread more easily when the air is dry.
Make sure to give yourself some extra time when you come to the Kotz plumbing showroom to register. It’s a great place to browse through our selection of showerheads and plumbing fixtures. Unlike the big box stores, you can try those faucets and fixtures before you buy them. And don’t worry about having to leave the kids home when you come. We have a play area in the showroom to keep them occupied while you’re checking things out.
Even if you don’t win the giveaway, Kotz Heating, Cooling & Plumbing urges you to do the cat, dog, and children a favor, and talk with us about installing a whole-house humidifier in your home. It will make everyone healthier and a lot less jumpy.
