Humidification in the Winter

Guaranteeing comfort in the wintertime 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 ignored aspects of cooler weather: dry air. The frigid weather extracts all the humidity out of the air, instigating many complications for your family and home. Dry air enhances the risk 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 cold weather. Our bodies aren’t the only entities 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 increase moisture to your home is with humidification. Humidifiers offer whole-home air moisture and can grant you back control of your home air. It is simple and painless to install to your existing HVAC system to activitate the circulation and dispersal of reliable air.
