Making certain of comfort in the colder season demands more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep comfortable, we have to be mindful of one of the most forgotten aspects of chilly weather: dry air. The frigid weather sucks all the humidity out of the air, causing many difficulties for your family and home. Dry air enhances the risk of everything from sickness to even shocks from static. All these possible issues can be counteracted with the use of a humidifier.
Why does the air dry out? What can you do about it?
When temperatures drop, the makeup and formation of the air itself modifies. The winter air has less moisture than summer air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dry much quicker in the cold weather. Our bodies aren’t the only entities that dry during the colder months – wood floors, furniture and paint in and near our homes have a higher risk of breaking and chipping in the dry air.
The greatest way to insert moisture to your home is with humidification. Humidifiers provide whole-home air moisture and can grant you back control of your home air. It is simple and painless to install to your existing HVAC system to begin the circulation and dispersal of reliable air.
