Humidification in the Winter

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 frigid weather pulls all the humidity out of the air, bringing many difficulties for your family and home. Dry air increases the risk of everything from sickness to even shocks from static. All these potential 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 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 arid much easier in the cold weather. Our bodies aren’t the only items that dry during the chilly season – wood floors, furniture and paint in and about our homes have a greater risk of cracking and chipping in the dry air.

The greatest way to insert moisture to your home is with humidification. Humidifiers provide whole-home air moisture and can grant you back control of your home air. It is easy and painless to install to your existing HVAC system to start the circulation and dispersal of consistent air.
