Much of the country is facing below average temperatures right now and comfort seems to be top of mind for many people. Daily comfort extends beyond ensuring you have a warm coat and gloves too. The colder weather essentially sucks the humidity out of the air, resulting in dry air that can have several negative implications for your household.
Dry air can impact a lot of things, including an increase in your chances of getting sick and an increase in potential shocks from static. Of course, they aren’t even in the same realm of seriousness, but they are both annoyances that could be prevented with the use of a humidifier.
Why does the air dry out?
The colder air changes the makeup of the air during the winter. Cooler air isn’t able to keep in the same amount of moisture as warmer air, which is why it’s easy to notice dry skin or chapped lips in the winter. This can also impact the inside of your home, such as wood floors and furniture, potentially causing splitting and cracking, and paint is also at a higher risk of chipping.
So, what can you do?
Humidification is more than just adding moisture to the air in your home. Of course, there are a number of humidifiers to choose from, but adding a whole-home humidifier gives you optimal control over your home’s humidity. It is added to your existing HVAC system and adds moisture directly into the heated air that is circulated throughout your home. A whole-home humidifier delivers the moisture more reliably and in the ultimate capacity too, so why settle for anything less than ideal comfort?
- Adding a humidifier can help ease skin irritations and dry skin.
- Keeping humidity levels in check helps to maintain your paint, furniture and flooring, avoiding additional repair costs.
- Reduce your chance of getting shocked through static electricity.
- Promote a proper environment for indoor plants to grow. The appropriate humidification offers your plants the best chance at life and helps to ensure they last longer.
There are solutions available to make sure you don’t have to deal with the implications of dry air in the home. Proper humidification of your air is easier than you think too, so why wait any longer? Adding a humidifier to your indoor space can not only keep your home more comfortable, but can potentially help keep you a little healthier as all the bugs make their yearly rounds.
