Humidification in the Winter

Guaranteeing comfort in the colder season entails 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 forgotten aspects of colder weather: dry air. The frosty weather pulls all the humidity out of the air, causing many difficulties for your family and home. Dry air enhances the dangers of everything from sickness to even shocks from static. All these potential concerns can be counteracted with the use of a humidifier.

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

When temperatures drop, 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 more often in the cold weather. Our bodies aren’t the only entities that dry during the winter – wood floors, furniture and paint in and around our homes have a greater risk of splitting and chipping in the dry air.

The greatest 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 existing HVAC system to start the circulation and distribution of consistent air.
