Guaranteeing comfort in the wintertime entails more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep cozy, we have to be mindful of one of the most forgotten aspects of chilly weather: dry air. The frosty weather pulls all the humidity out of the air, bringing many complications for your family and home. Dry air enhances the risk of everything from disease to even shocks from static. All these hypothetical 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 makeup and formation of the air itself modifies. The cold air has less moisture than hot air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dry much quicker in the chilly season. Our bodies aren’t the only items that dry during the colder months – wood floors, furniture and paint in and about our homes have a greater risk of splitting and chipping in the dry air.
The best way to increase moisture to your home is with humidification. Humidifiers provide whole-home air moisture and can give you back control of your home air. It is simple and painless to install to your current HVAC system to activitate the circulation and dispersal of consistent air.
