Humidification in the Winter

Ensuring comfort in the colder season requires more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep warm, we have to be mindful of one of the most forgotten aspects of chilly weather: dry air. The frigid weather sucks all the humidity out of the air, instigating many difficulties for your family and home. Dry air enhances the dangers of everything from illness to even shocks from static. All these potential issues can be counteracted 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 chilly air has less moisture than hot air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dehydrated much easier in the cold weather. Our bodies aren’t the only items that dry during the chilly season – wood floors, furniture and paint in and around our homes have a larger risk of splitting and chipping in the dry air.

The greatest 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 straightforward and painless to install to your present HVAC system to start the circulation and dispersal of dependable air.

  • Sustaining humidity levels can lower your spending by not having to worry about ruined flooring, furniture or paint.
