Humidification in the Winter

Guaranteeing comfort in the colder season entails 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 ignored aspects of chilly weather: dry air. The freezing weather extracts all the humidity out of the air, bringing many problems for your family and home. Dry air increases the risk of everything from disease to even shocks from static. All these potential problems can be avoided 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 changes. The winter air has less moisture than warm air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and arid much quicker in the cold weather. Our bodies aren’t the only things that dry during the colder months – wood floors, furniture and paint in and near our homes have a higher risk of splitting and chipping in the dry air.

The most efficient way to increase 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 present HVAC system to activitate the circulation and allocation of consistent air.
