Humidification in the Winter

February 23, 2015

Ensuring comfort in the colder season entails more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep cozy, we have to be aware of one of the most overlooked aspects of colder weather: dry air. The freezing weather sucks all the humidity out of the air, causing many problems for your family and home. Dry air adds the dangers 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 composition and formation of the air itself changes. The winter air has less moisture than warm air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and arid much quicker in the winter. Our bodies aren’t the only things that dry during the chilly season – wood floors, furniture and paint in and about 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 bring you back control of your home air. It is simple and painless to install to your present HVAC system to begin the circulation and allocation of reliable air.

Added benefits with humidifiers

  • Upholding humidity levels can save you money by not having to worry about broken flooring, furniture or paint.
  • It can decrease the possibility of getting shocked through static electricity.
  • Inserting in a humidifier can help ease skin irritations and dry skin.
  • Humidifiers can create a reliable environment for indoor plants. Amply humidified home air can provide plants the greatest chance at survival.
