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 really sucks the humidity out of the air, resulting in dry air that can have several negative implications for your household.
Dry air can impact a lot of things, including an increase in your chances of getting sick and an increase in potential shocks from static. These differ in the level of importance, but they are both annoyances that can be prevented with the use of a humidifier.
Why does the air dry out?
The colder air changes the makeup of the air during the winter. 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, how do you help?
There is more to humidification than just increasing the amount of moisture. There are a lot of different models and types of humidifiers to select from, but adding a whole-home humidifier gives you optimal control over your home’s humidity. Incorporated with your current HVAC system, it adds moisture directly into the heated air that is circulated throughout your indoor space. A whole-home humidifier delivers the moisture more reliably and in the ultimate capacity too, helping you and your family benefit from your ideal home comfort.
- Adding a humidifier can help improve 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 static electricity in your home.
- Promote a proper environment for indoor plants to grow. Proper humidification can help your plants live longer.
You don’t have to suffer because of dry air in the winter. Proper humidification of your air is easier than you think too, so why wait any longer? Adding a humidifier to your home can keep you comfortable in the home while also increasing the chances you’ll stay healthy during the sick season.
