With much of the country dealing with colder than normal temperatures, comfort seems to be one of the most important topics each day. Daily comfort extends beyond ensuring you have a warm coat and gloves too. The colder weather essentially sucks the humidity out of the air, resulting in dry air that can have several negative implications for your household.
Dry air is the cause of many things, including increased static and heightened risk for sickness. Of course, they aren’t even in the same realm of seriousness, but they are both annoyances that may be prevented with the use of a humidifier.
Why does the air dry out?
The winter months bring cooler air and the drop in temperatures impacts the makeup of the air. Cooler air isn’t able to keep in the same amount of moisture as warmer air, which is why it’s easy to notice dry skin or chapped lips in the winter. This can also impact the inside of your home, such as wood floors and furniture, potentially causing splitting and cracking, and paint is also at a higher risk of chipping.
So, what can you do?
Adding moisture isn’t the only factor when it comes to humidification in the home. There are a lot of different models and types of humidifiers to select from, but adding a whole-home humidifier gives you optimal control over the humidity in your home. Working in partnership with your existing HVAC system, it adds moisture directly into the heated air that is circulated throughout your home. A whole-home humidifier delivers the moisture more consistently and in the maximum capacity too, so why settle for anything less than ideal comfort?
- Adding a humidifier can help alleviate skin irritations and dry skin.
- Keeping humidity levels in check helps to maintain your paint, furniture and flooring, avoiding additional repair costs.
- Reduce the static electricity in your home.
- Foster a proper environment for indoor plants to thrive. Proper humidification can help your plants live longer.
