Ensuring comfort in the wintertime entails more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep comfortable, we have to be aware 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 chances of everything from disease to even shocks from static. All these potential issues can be avoided with the use of a humidifier.
Why does the air dry out? What can you do about it?
When temperatures decrease, the composition and formation of the air itself changes. The cold air has less moisture than hot air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dry much more often in the cold weather. Our bodies aren’t the only things that dry during the chilly season – wood floors, furniture and paint in and near our homes have a larger risk of splitting and chipping in the dry air.
The best way to insert 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 straightforward and painless to install to your current HVAC system to activitate the circulation and dispersal of dependable air.
