Humidification in the Winter02/23/2015 Ensuring 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 mindful of one of the most overlooked aspects of cooler weather: dry air. The frosty weather pulls all the humidity out of the air, instigating many difficulties for your family and home. Dry air adds the dangers of everything from illness to even shocks from static. All these possible 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 makeup and formation of the air itself alters. The chilly air has less moisture than hot air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and arid much easier in the chilly season. Our bodies aren’t the only things that dry during the colder months – wood floors, furniture and paint in and near our homes have a greater risk of cracking and chipping in the dry air. The greatest way to insert 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 current HVAC system to begin the circulation and distribution of reliable air. Added benefits with humidifiers Upholding humidity levels can save you money by not having to worry about broken flooring, furniture or paint. It can decrease the likelihood of getting shocked through static electricity. Inserting in a humidifier can help alleviate skin irritations and dry skin. Humidifiers can create a reliable environment for indoor plants. Amply humidified home air can present plants the best chance at survival. Why deal with the side effects of dry air this season when proper humidification is a straightforward and effective resolution?
