Humidification in the Winter

Air Quality

Ensuring comfort in the cold winter entails more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep warm, we have to be aware of one of the most overlooked aspects of chilly weather: dry air. The frosty weather sucks all the humidity out of the air, bringing many problems for your family and home. Dry air enhances the dangers of everything from sickness 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 decrease, the structure and formation of the air itself alters. The cold air has less moisture than summer air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dry much easier 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 higher risk of splitting and chipping in the dry air.

The best way to add 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 straightforward and painless to install to your current HVAC system to activitate the circulation and dispersal of reliable air.
