Humidification in the Winter02/23/2015 Ensuring comfort in the cold winter requires 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 chances of everything from sickness to even shocks from static. All these possible problems can be counteracted 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 chilly air has less moisture than warm air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and arid much quicker in the chilly season. Our bodies aren’t the only things that dry during the winter – wood floors, furniture and paint in and around our homes have a larger risk of cracking and chipping in the dry air. The best way to insert 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 straightforward and painless to install to your existing HVAC system to begin the circulation and dispersal of reliable air.
