Humidification in the Winter

Ensuring comfort in the colder season requires more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep cozy, we have to be mindful of one of the most overlooked 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 adds the dangers of everything from illness to even shocks from static. All these possible problems can be prevented with the use of a humidifier.

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

When temperatures decrease, the composition and formation of the air itself changes. The winter air has less moisture than hot air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and arid much more often 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 higher risk of cracking and chipping in the dry air.

The best way to add moisture to your home is with humidification. Humidifiers provide whole-home air moisture and can grant you back control of your home air. It is easy and painless to install to your present HVAC system to start the circulation and distribution of reliable air.

Added benefits with humidifiers

  • Sustaining humidity levels can save you money by not having to worry about ruined flooring, furniture or paint.
  • It can decrease the possibility of getting shocked through static electricity.
  • Inserting in a humidifier can help ease skin irritations and dry skin.
