Humidification in the Winter

Air Quality

Ensuring comfort in the cold winter demands more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep cozy, we have to be aware of one of the most forgotten aspects of chilly weather: dry air. The freezing weather sucks all the humidity out of the air, bringing many problems for your family and home. Dry air increases the risk of everything from disease to even shocks from static. All these hypothetical concerns can be prevented with the use of a humidifier.

Why does the air dry out? What can you do about it?

When temperatures drop, the structure and formation of the air itself changes. The winter air has less moisture than warm air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dehydrated much more often in the chilly season. Our bodies aren’t the only items that dry during the winter – wood floors, furniture and paint in and about our homes have a greater risk of splitting and chipping in the dry air.

The most efficient way to increase moisture to your home is with humidification. Humidifiers offer whole-home air moisture and can grant you back control of your home air. It is straightforward and painless to install to your existing HVAC system to begin the circulation and distribution of consistent air.

Added benefits with humidifiers

  • Sustaining humidity levels can lower your spending by not having to worry about broken flooring, furniture or paint.
  • It can reduce the likelihood of getting shocked through static electricity.
  • Utilizing a humidifier can help alleviate skin irritations and dry skin.
  • Humidifiers can foster a suitable environment for indoor plants. Properly humidified home air can present plants the utmost chance at survival.
