Humidification in the Winter

Guaranteeing comfort in the wintertime requires 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 forgotten aspects of colder weather: dry air. The frosty weather extracts all the humidity out of the air, bringing many complications for your family and home. Dry air enhances the dangers of everything from sickness to even shocks from static. All these possible problems 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 composition and formation of the air itself alters. The winter air has less moisture than hot air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dehydrated much easier in the chilly season. Our bodies aren’t the only items that dry during the winter – wood floors, furniture and paint in and about our homes have a higher risk of splitting and chipping in the dry air.

The most efficient way to add moisture to your home is with humidification. Humidifiers offer whole-home air moisture and can give you back control of your home air. It is simple and painless to install to your existing HVAC system to start the circulation and distribution of consistent air.

Added benefits with humidifiers

  • Sustaining humidity levels can save you money by not having to worry about ruined flooring, furniture or paint.
  • It can decrease the possibility of getting shocked through static electricity.
  • Inserting in a humidifier can help alleviate skin irritations and dry skin.
  • Humidifiers can foster a good environment for indoor plants. Amply humidified home air can present plants the utmost chance at survival.
