Ensuring comfort in the wintertime requires 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 ignored aspects of colder weather: dry air. The frosty weather pulls all the humidity out of the air, causing many difficulties for your family and home. Dry air adds the risk of everything from sickness to even shocks from static. All these potential concerns can be avoided with the use of a humidifier.
Why does the air dry out? What can you do about it?
When temperatures lower, the composition and formation of the air itself changes. The chilly air has less moisture than hot air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and arid much more often in the winter. Our bodies aren’t the only entities that dry during the colder months – wood floors, furniture and paint in and near our homes have a greater risk of splitting and chipping in the dry air.
The most efficient way to insert moisture to your home is with humidification. Humidifiers provide whole-home air moisture and can bring you back control of your home air. It is simple and painless to install to your existing HVAC system to start the circulation and dispersal of consistent air.
Added benefits with humidifiers
