Guaranteeing comfort in the colder season entails more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep warm, we have to be aware of one of the most ignored aspects of colder weather: dry air. The frigid weather extracts all the humidity out of the air, bringing many difficulties for your family and home. Dry air enhances the chances of everything from disease to even shocks from static. All these possible issues can be prevented with the use of a humidifier.
Why does the air dry out? What can you do about it?
When temperatures drop, the structure and formation of the air itself changes. The chilly air has less moisture than warm air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and arid much more often in the winter. Our bodies aren’t the only entities that dry during the colder months – wood floors, furniture and paint in and about our homes have a larger risk of breaking 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 bring you back control of your home air. It is easy and painless to install to your current HVAC system to begin the circulation and distribution of dependable air.
