Humidification in the Winter

February 23, 2015

Guaranteeing comfort in the wintertime entails more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep warm, we have to be aware of one of the most forgotten aspects of chilly weather: dry air. The freezing weather extracts all the humidity out of the air, instigating many problems for your family and home. Dry air enhances the chances of everything from disease 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 drop, the makeup 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 arid much quicker in the chilly season. Our bodies aren’t the only items that dry during the colder months – wood floors, furniture and paint in and around our homes have a greater risk of splitting 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 simple and painless to install to your current HVAC system to start the circulation and dispersal of dependable air.
