Humidification in the Winter

Making certain of comfort in the colder season demands more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep comfortable, we have to be conscious of one of the most overlooked aspects of cooler weather: dry air. The freezing 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 illness 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 drop, the composition and formation of the air itself alters. The chilly air has less moisture than warm air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and arid much easier in the winter. Our bodies aren’t the only items that dry during the chilly season – wood floors, furniture and paint in and near our homes have a higher risk of cracking and chipping in the dry air.

The best way to increase 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 easy and painless to install to your existing HVAC system to start the circulation and dispersal of reliable air.
