Humidification in the Winter

Making certain of comfort in the colder season demands 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 frosty 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 illness to even shocks from static. All these hypothetical problems can be avoided with the use of a humidifier.

Why does the air dry out? What can you do about it?

When temperatures drop, the composition 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 dehydrated much quicker in the chilly season. Our bodies aren’t the only items that dry during the winter – 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 bring you back control of your home air. It is straightforward and painless to install to your current HVAC system to start the circulation and dispersal of consistent air.
