Ensuring comfort in the colder season entails more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep comfortable, we have to be aware of one of the most ignored aspects of colder weather: dry air. The freezing weather sucks all the humidity out of the air, bringing many difficulties for your family and home. Dry air increases the risk of everything from disease 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 lower, the structure and formation of the air itself modifies. The chilly air has less moisture than warm air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dehydrated much easier in the winter. Our bodies aren’t the only items that dry during the colder months – wood floors, furniture and paint in and near our homes have a greater risk of splitting 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 simple and painless to install to your current HVAC system to begin the circulation and distribution of dependable air.
