Much of the country is facing below average temperatures right now and comfort seems to be of high importance for most of us. Daily comfort is more than making sure you have warm jackets and hats. The colder weather really extracts the humidity out of the air, resulting in dry air that can have several negative implications for your household.
Dry air can impact a lot of things, including an increase in your chances of getting sick and an increase in potential shocks from static. Of course, they aren’t even in the same realm of seriousness, but they are both annoyances that can be prevented with the use of a humidifier.
Why does the air dry out?
The colder air changes the makeup of the air during the winter. Cooler air isn’t able to keep in the same amount of moisture as warmer air, which you likely notice when you experience dry skin and chapped lips. That dry air can also wreak havoc on wood floors and furniture, potentially causing splitting and cracking, and paint is also at a higher risk of chipping.
So, what should you do next?
Humidification is more than just adding moisture to the air in your home. You’ll find there is a wide variety of options when it comes to humidifiers, but adding a whole-home humidifier gives you the most control over the humidity in your home. Incorporated with your current HVAC system, it adds moisture directly into the heated air that is circulated throughout your indoor space. A whole-home humidifier circulates the moisture more reliably and in the greatest capacity too, helping you and your family benefit from your ideal home comfort.
Other Benefits of a Humidifier
- Adding a humidifier can help alleviate skin irritations and dry skin.
- Keeping humidity levels in check can save you from having to spend money on damaged furniture, flooring and paint.
- Reduce the static electricity in your home.
- Create an ideal environment for indoor plants to grow. Keeping your home’s air properly humidified can give plants the best space to live in, helping them live longer.
