Humidification in the Winter

Guaranteeing comfort in the wintertime requires more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep comfortable, we have to be aware of one of the most ignored aspects of cooler weather: dry air. The frosty weather pulls all the humidity out of the air, bringing many problems for your family and home. Dry air increases the risk of everything from sickness to even shocks from static. All these potential problems can be counteracted 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 modifies. The chilly air has less moisture than warm air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dry much quicker 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 larger risk of splitting and chipping in the dry air.

The greatest way to add 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 straightforward and painless to install to your current HVAC system to start the circulation and distribution of consistent air.

Added benefits with humidifiers

  • Maintaining humidity levels can reduce costs by not having to worry about damaged flooring, furniture or paint.
  • It can lower the chance of getting shocked through static electricity.
  • Inserting in a humidifier can help lessen skin irritations and dry skin.
  • Humidifiers can create a good environment for indoor plants. Properly humidified home air can provide plants the greatest chance at survival.

Why settle with the side effects of dry air this time of year when proper humidification is a simple and effective resolution? Keep your home comfortable and keep your family a little healthier this winter as the flu makes its rounds.
