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 comfortable, we have to be conscious of one of the most overlooked aspects of colder weather: dry air. The frosty weather pulls all the humidity out of the air, instigating many difficulties for your family and home. Dry air enhances the risk of everything from illness to even shocks from static. All these possible issues can be counteracted with the use of a humidifier.

Why does the air dry out? What can you do about it?

When temperatures lower, the makeup and formation of the air itself modifies. The winter air has less moisture than hot air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and arid much easier in the winter. Our bodies aren’t the only things that dry during the colder months – wood floors, furniture and paint in and near our homes have a greater risk of splitting and chipping in the dry air.

The best way to increase moisture to your home is with humidification. Humidifiers deliver whole-home air moisture and can grant you back control of your home air. It is straightforward and painless to install to your current HVAC system to start the circulation and dispersal of reliable air.
