Humidification in the Winter

February 23, 2015

Guaranteeing 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 cooler weather: dry air. The freezing weather pulls all the humidity out of the air, instigating many difficulties for your family and home. Dry air increases the dangers of everything from sickness to even shocks from static. All these hypothetical concerns can be avoided with the use of a humidifier.

Why does the air dry out? What can you do about it?

When temperatures lower, the composition and formation of the air itself modifies. The winter air has less moisture than hot air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dry much easier in the chilly season. Our bodies aren’t the only things that dry during the winter – wood floors, furniture and paint in and near our homes have a higher risk of splitting and chipping in the dry air.

The best way to add moisture to your home is with humidification. Humidifiers deliver 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 begin the circulation and distribution of dependable air.

Added benefits with humidifiers

  • Maintaining humidity levels can lower your spending by not having to worry about broken flooring, furniture or paint.
  • It can reduce the possibility of getting shocked through static electricity.
  • Utilizing a humidifier can help alleviate skin irritations and dry skin.
  • Humidifiers can create a good environment for indoor plants. Appropriately humidified home air can give plants the best chance at survival.
