Ensuring comfort in the colder season requires more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep cozy, we have to be mindful of one of the most forgotten aspects of colder weather: dry air. The frigid weather pulls all the humidity out of the air, instigating many problems for your family and home. Dry air increases the dangers of everything from disease to even shocks from static. All these potential problems 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 structure and formation of the air itself alters. The chilly air has less moisture than summer air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dehydrated much more often in the winter. Our bodies aren’t the only things that dry during the chilly season – wood floors, furniture and paint in and around our homes have a larger risk of breaking and chipping in the dry air.
The most efficient way to insert 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 simple and painless to install to your existing HVAC system to start the circulation and dispersal of dependable air.
Added benefits with humidifiers
