Cold, frigid air is enveloping much of the country right now and comfort seems to be of high importance for most of us. Daily comfort is more than making sure you have warm jackets and hats. The colder weather basically pulls the humidity out of the air, which can affect the comfort of your indoor space in several ways.
Dry air is the culprit for several issues, including an increase in your chances of getting sick and an increase in potential shocks from static. Of course, they aren’t even in the same realm of seriousness, but they are both annoyances that can be prevented with the use of a humidifier.
Why does the air dry out?
The winter months bring cooler air and the drop in temperatures impacts the makeup of the air. Cold air doesn’t hold as much moisture as warm air, which is the reason you often notice your skin becoming drier or having to apply more lip balm. That dry air can also wreak havoc on wood floors and furniture, potentially causing splitting and cracking, and paint is also at a higher risk of chipping.
So, what can you do?
Humidification is more than just adding moisture to the air in your home. You’ll find there is a wide variety of options when it comes to humidifiers, but adding a whole-home humidifier gives you optimal control over the humidity in your home. It is added to your existing HVAC system and adds moisture directly into the heated air that is circulated throughout your house. A whole-home humidifier circulates the moisture more consistently and in the greatest capacity too, so why settle for anything less than ideal comfort?
- Adding a humidifier can help ease skin irritations and dry skin.
- Keeping humidity levels in check reduces the chances you’ll need to repair furniture, flooring or paint due to damage.
- Reduce the occurrence of shocks from static electricity in your home.
- Promote an ideal environment for indoor plants to thrive. Proper humidification can help your plants live longer.
There are solutions available to make sure you don’t have to deal with the implications of dry air in the home. Proper humidification of your air is easier than you think too, so why wait any longer? Adding a humidifier to your house can keep you comfortable in the home while also increasing the chances you’ll stay healthy during the sick season.
