Guaranteeing 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 mindful of one of the most ignored aspects of cooler weather: dry air. The frigid weather extracts all the humidity out of the air, instigating many difficulties for your family and home. Dry air enhances the risk of everything from disease to even shocks from static. All these hypothetical 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 structure and formation of the air itself alters. The winter air has less moisture than summer air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dry 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 near our homes have a higher risk of splitting and chipping in the dry air.
The greatest 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 simple and painless to install to your current HVAC system to start the circulation and dispersal of dependable air.
