Humidification in the Winter

Guaranteeing comfort in the colder season requires more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep comfortable, we have to be mindful of one of the most ignored aspects of cooler weather: dry air. The frosty weather pulls all the humidity out of the air, causing many complications for your family and home. Dry air increases the risk of everything from disease to even shocks from static. All these potential problems can be prevented with the use of a humidifier.

Why does the air dry out? What can you do about it?

When temperatures lower, the structure and formation of the air itself modifies. The cold air has less moisture than warm air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dry much quicker in the chilly season. Our bodies aren’t the only things that dry during the winter – wood floors, furniture and paint in and about our homes have a greater risk of breaking and chipping in the dry air.

The greatest way to insert 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 activitate the circulation and dispersal of consistent air.
