Humidification in the Winter

Making certain of comfort in the colder season entails more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep warm, we have to be aware of one of the most ignored 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 adds the dangers of everything from illness to even shocks from static. All these hypothetical concerns can be counteracted 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 winter air has less moisture than warm air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dehydrated much quicker in the winter. 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 larger risk of splitting and chipping in the dry air.

The most efficient 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 simple and painless to install to your current HVAC system to start the circulation and dispersal of consistent air.
