3 Easy Ways to Controlling Static Electricity at Home

It can be a little shocking, literally, when static electricity starts to build up at your home. In addition to giving you small jolts when you touch certain items or other people, static can also cause clothes to stick together and hair to stick straight up. Fortunately, there are some ways in which this issue can be addressed.

1. Add Moisture

Dry air and static electricity can sometimes go hand in hand. To improve things at home, consider putting in a whole-home humidifier. Many modern units are relatively efficient and quiet to run. They can be purchased to be an independent appliance or hooked up to your existing HVAC system. At Rosenberg Plumbing & Air, we work with many clients in the Greater San Antonio area who are interested in improving comfort conditions at home, and we always individualize our recommendations based on our assessments.

2. Add House Plants

While a whole-home humidifier should be able to handle things, some people in smaller places may want to take a different approach. In this case, we’d recommend adding plants to your home. Plants release a lot of moisture, so they can do the same job as a humidifier but just on a smaller scale. They’ll also work to purify the air at the same time, and they can liven things up in terms of decor.

3. Use an Anti-Static Spray

There are some products available that are designed to reduce static electricity. Often, these products are intended to be sprayed on carpets, couches, and various other surfaces. You will have to do this periodically for long-lasting effects.
