Guaranteeing comfort in the cold winter entails more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep warm, we have to be mindful of one of the most overlooked aspects of chilly 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 chances 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 winter air has less moisture than warm air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and arid much easier in the chilly season. Our bodies aren’t the only things that dry during the colder months – wood floors, furniture and paint in and about our homes have a larger risk of splitting and chipping in the dry air.
The best way to insert moisture to your home is with humidification. Humidifiers deliver whole-home air moisture and can grant you back control of your home air. It is easy and painless to install to your current HVAC system to activitate the circulation and dispersal of consistent air.
