Humidification in the Winter

Ensuring comfort in the wintertime requires more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep warm, we have to be conscious of one of the most ignored aspects of cooler weather: dry air. The freezing weather extracts all the humidity out of the air, causing many problems for your family and home. Dry air enhances the risk of everything from sickness to even shocks from static. All these possible concerns can be counteracted with the use of a humidifier.

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

When temperatures decrease, the composition and formation of the air itself modifies. The cold air has less moisture than warm air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dry much easier in the winter. Our bodies aren’t the only items that dry during the chilly season – wood floors, furniture and paint in and near our homes have a larger risk of splitting and chipping in the dry air.

The greatest way to increase moisture to your home is with humidification. Humidifiers offer whole-home air moisture and can bring you back control of your home air. It is easy and painless to install to your existing HVAC system to start the circulation and allocation of dependable air.

Added benefits with humidifiers

  • Sustaining humidity levels can reduce costs by not having to worry about damaged flooring, furniture or paint.
  • It can reduce the likelihood of getting shocked through static electricity.
  • Adding a humidifier can help ease skin irritations and dry skin.
  • Humidifiers can create a reliable environment for indoor plants. Amply humidified home air can give plants the greatest chance at survival.
