Humidification in the Winter

Guaranteeing comfort in the cold winter entails 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 ignored aspects of colder weather: dry air. The frosty weather extracts all the humidity out of the air, causing many difficulties for your family and home. Dry air adds the dangers of everything from illness 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 lower, the makeup and formation of the air itself changes. The cold air has less moisture than hot air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dehydrated much more often in the cold weather. Our bodies aren’t the only items that dry during the chilly season – wood floors, furniture and paint in and about our homes have a larger risk of splitting and chipping in the dry air.

The best way to insert moisture to your home is with humidification. Humidifiers provide 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 begin the circulation and dispersal of consistent air.

Added benefits with humidifiers

  • Sustaining humidity levels can save you money by not having to worry about broken flooring, furniture or paint.
  • It can reduce the chance of getting shocked through static electricity.
  • Adding a humidifier can help alleviate skin irritations and dry skin.
  • Humidifiers can promote a good environment for indoor plants. Properly humidified home air can provide plants the greatest chance at survival.

Why settle with the side effects of dry air this season when proper humidification is an easy and effective resolution? Keep your home comfy and keep your family in good health this winter as the flu circulates.
