Humidification in the Winter

Ensuring comfort in the wintertime demands 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 overlooked aspects of chilly weather: dry air. The freezing weather extracts all the humidity out of the air, bringing many problems for your family and home. Dry air adds the risk of everything from sickness to even shocks from static. All these potential 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 winter air has less moisture than warm air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dry much quicker in the chilly season. Our bodies aren’t the only entities that dry during the colder months – wood floors, furniture and paint in and around our homes have a larger risk of cracking and chipping in the dry air.

The most efficient way to insert 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 easy and painless to install to your present HVAC system to activitate the circulation and allocation of consistent air.

Added benefits with humidifiers

  • Sustaining humidity levels can reduce costs by not having to worry about damaged flooring, furniture or paint.
  • It can decrease the chance of getting shocked through static electricity.
  • Adding a humidifier can help alleviate skin irritations and dry skin.
