Ensuring 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 forgotten aspects of colder weather: dry air. The freezing weather pulls all the humidity out of the air, causing many difficulties for your family and home. Dry air increases the dangers of everything from sickness to even shocks from static. All these hypothetical problems can be prevented with the use of a humidifier.
Why does the air dry out? What can you do about it?
When temperatures lower, the composition and formation of the air itself modifies. The chilly air has less moisture than warm air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dehydrated much quicker in the winter. Our bodies aren’t the only items that dry during the winter – wood floors, furniture and paint in and around our homes have a greater risk of cracking and chipping in the dry air.
The best way to add moisture to your home is with humidification. Humidifiers deliver whole-home air moisture and can give you back control of your home air. It is easy and painless to install to your present HVAC system to begin the circulation and allocation of reliable air.
Added benefits with humidifiers
- Maintaining humidity levels can lower your spending by not having to worry about ruined flooring, furniture or paint.
