Ensuring comfort in the wintertime 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 forgotten aspects of cooler weather: dry air. The frigid weather pulls all the humidity out of the air, instigating many complications for your family and home. Dry air increases the risk of everything from sickness to even shocks from static. All these possible concerns 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 alters. The cold air has less moisture than warm air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dehydrated much easier in the cold weather. Our bodies aren’t the only items that dry during the chilly season – wood floors, furniture and paint in and near our homes have a higher risk of breaking 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 simple and painless to install to your current HVAC system to activitate the circulation and distribution of consistent air.
