Ensuring comfort in the wintertime demands more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep warm, we have to be aware of one of the most forgotten aspects of colder weather: dry air. The freezing weather extracts all the humidity out of the air, instigating many complications for your family and home. Dry air adds the dangers of everything from disease to even shocks from static. All these possible concerns can be prevented 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 changes. The cold air has less moisture than summer air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dry much easier in the chilly season. Our bodies aren’t the only entities that dry during the chilly season – wood floors, furniture and paint in and near our homes have a larger risk of cracking 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 give you back control of your home air. It is simple and painless to install to your current HVAC system to start the circulation and distribution of reliable air.
Added benefits with humidifiers
- Maintaining humidity levels can lower your spending by not having to worry about damaged flooring, furniture or paint.
