Humidification in the Winter

Guaranteeing comfort in the wintertime 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 overlooked 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 enhances the chances of everything from sickness to even shocks from static. All these potential problems can be prevented 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 cold air has less moisture than warm air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dry much easier in the winter. Our bodies aren’t the only items that dry during the colder months – 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 insert moisture to your home is with humidification. Humidifiers provide whole-home air moisture and can give you back control of your home air. It is easy and painless to install to your existing HVAC system to start the circulation and dispersal of dependable air.

Added benefits with humidifiers

  • Maintaining humidity levels can lower your spending by not having to worry about ruined flooring, furniture or paint.
