Humidification in the Winter

Air Quality

Ensuring comfort in the wintertime entails 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 forgotten aspects of colder weather: dry air. The frosty weather sucks all the humidity out of the air, instigating many difficulties for your family and home. Dry air adds the dangers of everything from disease to even shocks from static. All these hypothetical issues 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 composition and formation of the air itself changes. The cold air has less moisture than hot air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and arid much quicker in the cold weather. Our bodies aren’t the only items that dry during the winter – wood floors, furniture and paint in and about our homes have a larger 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 bring you back control of your home air. It is easy and painless to install to your present HVAC system to start the circulation and dispersal of dependable air.
