Tackling Dry Air in the Winter

With much of the country dealing with colder than normal temperatures, comfort seems to be top of mind for many people. Daily comfort extends beyond ensuring you have a warm coat and gloves, too. The colder weather essentially extracts the humidity out of the air, leaving you with dry air that can have a number of effects on you and your home.

Dry air can impact a lot of things, including increased static and heightened risk for sickness. These differ in the level of importance, but they are both annoyances that may be prevented with the use of a humidifier.

Why does the air dry out?

Well, when winter comes around and the temperatures drop, the makeup of the air itself changes. Warmer air is able to retain more moisture, which you likely notice when you experience dry skin and chapped lips. This can also impact the inside of your home, such as wood floors and furniture, potentially causing splitting and cracking, and paint is also at a higher risk of chipping.

So, what can you do?

Adding moisture isn’t the only factor when it comes to humidification in the home. Of course, there are a number of humidifiers to choose from, but adding a whole-home humidifier gives you optimal control over humidity levels in your house. Incorporated with your current HVAC system, it adds moisture directly into the heated air that is circulated throughout your house. A whole-home humidifier delivers the moisture more regularly and in the greatest capacity, too, so why settle for anything less than ideal comfort?
