Making certain of comfort in the colder season 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 overlooked aspects of chilly weather: dry air. The freezing weather extracts all the humidity out of the air, instigating many problems for your family and home. Dry air adds the dangers of everything from sickness to even shocks from static. All these possible 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 alters. 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 items that dry during the winter – wood floors, furniture and paint in and about 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 offer whole-home air moisture and can grant you back control of your home air. It is straightforward and painless to install to your current HVAC system to begin the circulation and dispersal of reliable air.
