Humidification in the Winter

Guaranteeing comfort in the cold winter entails more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep warm, we have to be conscious of one of the most forgotten aspects of colder weather: dry air. The freezing weather pulls all the humidity out of the air, bringing many problems for your family and home. Dry air increases the chances of everything from sickness to even shocks from static. All these potential issues 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 structure 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 more often in the cold weather. Our bodies aren’t the only things that dry during the winter – wood floors, furniture and paint in and about our homes have a higher risk of breaking and chipping in the dry air.

The best way to increase moisture to your home is with humidification. Humidifiers deliver 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 distribution of reliable air.
