Humidification in the Winter

Guaranteeing comfort in the cold winter requires more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep warm, we have to be conscious of one of the most forgotten aspects of cooler weather: dry air. The frigid weather pulls all the humidity out of the air, bringing many complications for your family and home. Dry air adds the risk of everything from sickness to even shocks from static. All these possible problems 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 makeup and formation of the air itself alters. The cold 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 winter – wood floors, furniture and paint in and near our homes have a larger risk of cracking and chipping in the dry air.

The most efficient way to increase moisture to your home is with humidification. Humidifiers provide whole-home air moisture and can grant you back control of your home air. It is straightforward and painless to install to your existing HVAC system to activitate the circulation and distribution of consistent air.
