Humidification in the Winter

Ensuring comfort in the cold winter demands more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep cozy, we have to be aware of one of the most forgotten aspects of colder weather: dry air. The frosty weather extracts all the humidity out of the air, causing many complications for your family and home. Dry air increases the risk of everything from sickness to even shocks from static. All these possible problems can be counteracted with the use of a humidifier.

Why does the air dry out? What can you do about it?

When temperatures drop, the composition and formation of the air itself changes. The winter air has less moisture than summer air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dry much more often in the cold weather. Our bodies aren’t the only entities that dry during the colder months – wood floors, furniture and paint in and near our homes have a higher risk of cracking and chipping in the dry air.

The greatest way to add moisture to your home is with humidification. Humidifiers deliver whole-home air moisture and can give you back control of your home air. It is straightforward and painless to install to your present HVAC system to activitate the circulation and dispersal of consistent air.

Added benefits with humidifiers

  • Upholding humidity levels can lower your spending by not having to worry about damaged flooring, furniture or paint.
  • It can reduce the possibility of getting shocked through static electricity.
  • Adding a humidifier can help alleviate skin irritations and dry skin.
