Humidification in the Winter

Making certain of 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 conscious of one of the most ignored aspects of cooler weather: dry air. The frosty weather pulls all the humidity out of the air, instigating many problems for your family and home. Dry air increases the chances of everything from sickness to even shocks from static. All these hypothetical issues 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 structure and formation of the air itself changes. The cold air has less moisture than warm air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dry much easier in the chilly season. Our bodies aren’t the only items that dry during the winter – wood floors, furniture and paint in and around our homes have a higher risk of splitting 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 easy and painless to install to your current HVAC system to begin the circulation and dispersal of reliable air.
