Humidification in the Winter

Ensuring comfort in the wintertime entails 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, instigating many complications for your family and home. Dry air adds the risk 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 cold air has less moisture than summer air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and arid much more often in the winter. Our bodies aren’t the only entities that dry during the chilly season – wood floors, furniture and paint in and around our homes have a larger risk of breaking 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 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 consistent air.

Added benefits with humidifiers

  • Sustaining humidity levels can reduce costs by not having to worry about ruined flooring, furniture or paint.
  • It can reduce the chance of getting shocked through static electricity.
  • Inserting in a humidifier can help ease skin irritations and dry skin.
  • Humidifiers can create a good environment for indoor plants. Appropriately humidified home air can give plants the utmost chance at survival.
