Humidification in the Winter

Guaranteeing comfort in the colder season requires more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep warm, we have to be mindful of one of the most ignored aspects of cooler weather: dry air. The frigid weather sucks all the humidity out of the air, causing many complications for your family and home. Dry air enhances the dangers of everything from disease to even shocks from static. All these hypothetical 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 composition and formation of the air itself changes. The chilly air has less moisture than warm 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 around our homes have a higher risk of cracking and chipping in the dry air.

The greatest way to increase 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 activitate the circulation and distribution of consistent air.

Added benefits with humidifiers

  • Maintaining humidity levels can reduce costs by not having to worry about damaged flooring, furniture or paint.
