Humidification in the Winter

February 23, 2015

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 conscious of one of the most overlooked aspects of chilly weather: dry air. The freezing weather sucks all the humidity out of the air, instigating many problems for your family and home. Dry air adds the risk of everything from sickness to even shocks from static. All these hypothetical issues can be avoided with the use of a humidifier.

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

When temperatures decrease, the structure and formation of the air itself changes. The chilly air has less moisture than hot air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dry much easier in the chilly season. Our bodies aren’t the only things that dry during the chilly season – wood floors, furniture and paint in and around our homes have a higher risk of cracking and chipping in the dry air.

The greatest way to add 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 present HVAC system to start the circulation and distribution of dependable air.
