With much of the country dealing with colder than normal temperatures, comfort seems to be one of the most important topics each day. Daily comfort extends beyond ensuring you have a warm coat and gloves too. The colder weather basically pulls 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 increased static and heightened risk for sickness. 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, how do you help?
There is more to humidification than just increasing the amount of moisture. You’ll find there is a wide variety of options when it comes to humidifiers, but adding a whole-home humidifier gives you the best control over the humidity in your home. 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 consistently 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.
