Humidification in the Winter

Making certain of comfort in the wintertime demands more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep warm, we have to be mindful of one of the most ignored aspects of colder weather: dry air. The frigid weather extracts all the humidity out of the air, bringing many problems for your family and home. Dry air adds the risk of everything from illness 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 decrease, the structure and formation of the air itself changes. The chilly air has less moisture than summer air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dry much more often in the winter. Our bodies aren’t the only items that dry during the winter – wood floors, furniture and paint in and near our homes have a greater risk of splitting and chipping in the dry air.

The best way to increase moisture to your home is with humidification. Humidifiers provide 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 reliable air.
