Humidification in the Winter

Air Quality

Making certain of comfort in the colder season requires more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep comfortable, we have to be conscious of one of the most ignored aspects of chilly weather: dry air. The freezing weather pulls all the humidity out of the air, causing many complications for your family and home. Dry air adds the chances of everything from sickness to even shocks from static. All these potential 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 composition and formation of the air itself changes. The cold air has less moisture than summer air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dehydrated much easier in the winter. Our bodies aren’t the only entities that dry during the chilly season – wood floors, furniture and paint in and near our homes have a larger risk of cracking 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 distribution of consistent air.
