Guaranteeing comfort in the colder season requires more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep warm, we have to be mindful of one of the most forgotten aspects of cooler weather: dry air. The freezing weather sucks all the humidity out of the air, bringing many complications for your family and home. Dry air adds the dangers of everything from illness to even shocks from static. All these potential problems can be avoided with the use of a humidifier.
Why does the air dry out? What can you do about it?
When temperatures decrease, the composition and formation of the air itself alters. The cold air has less moisture than summer air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dry much more often in the chilly season. Our bodies aren’t the only entities that dry during the colder months – wood floors, furniture and paint in and around our homes have a higher risk of splitting and chipping in the dry air.
The best way to insert moisture to your home is with humidification. Humidifiers provide whole-home air moisture and can give you back control of your home air. It is easy and painless to install to your present HVAC system to start the circulation and distribution of reliable air.
Added benefits with humidifiers
