Ensuring comfort in the cold winter requires more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep comfortable, we have to be mindful of one of the most forgotten aspects of colder weather: dry air. The frosty weather pulls all the humidity out of the air, bringing many complications for your family and home. Dry air adds the dangers of everything from disease to even shocks from static. All these hypothetical problems can be avoided with the use of a humidifier.
Why does the air dry out? What can you do about it?
When temperatures decrease, the structure and formation of the air itself changes. The cold air has less moisture than summer air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and arid much easier in the winter. Our bodies aren’t the only things that dry during the chilly season – wood floors, furniture and paint in and near our homes have a greater risk of splitting and chipping in the dry air.
The most efficient way to insert moisture to your home is with humidification. Humidifiers offer whole-home air moisture and can bring you back control of your home air. It is straightforward and painless to install to your current HVAC system to start the circulation and allocation of consistent air.
