Humidification in the Winter

Guaranteeing comfort in the wintertime 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 cooler weather: dry air. The freezing weather pulls all the humidity out of the air, causing many complications for your family and home. Dry air adds the risk of everything from illness to even shocks from static. All these possible issues 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 makeup and formation of the air itself changes. The winter air has less moisture than warm air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dehydrated much easier in the winter. Our bodies aren’t the only items that dry during the chilly season – wood floors, furniture and paint in and around our homes have a higher risk of cracking and chipping in the dry air.

The most efficient way to add moisture to your home is with humidification. Humidifiers deliver whole-home air moisture and can grant you back control of your home air. It is easy and painless to install to your existing HVAC system to activitate the circulation and dispersal of reliable air.

Added benefits with humidifiers

  • Upholding humidity levels can lower your spending by not having to worry about ruined 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.
