Humidification in the Winter

Guaranteeing comfort in the colder season requires more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep comfortable, we have to be aware of one of the most forgotten aspects of cooler weather: dry air. The freezing weather pulls all the humidity out of the air, instigating many difficulties for your family and home. Dry air adds 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 winter air has less moisture than warm air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dehydrated much more often in the winter. Our bodies aren’t the only things that dry during the colder months – wood floors, furniture and paint in and about 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 bring you back control of your home air. It is simple and painless to install to your current HVAC system to start the circulation and distribution of dependable air.
