With much of the country dealing with colder than normal temperatures, comfort seems to be top of mind for many people. Daily comfort is more than making sure you have warm jackets and hats. The colder weather basically sucks 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 could 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 why it’s easy to notice dry skin or chapped lips in the winter. 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?
There is more to humidification than just increasing the amount of moisture. 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 circulates the moisture more reliably and in the greatest 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 helps to maintain your paint, furniture and flooring, avoiding additional repair costs.
- Reduce your chance of getting shocked through static electricity.
- Create a proper environment for indoor plants to grow. Keeping your home’s air properly humidified can give plants the best space to live in, helping them 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 house can keep you comfortable in the home while also increasing the chances you’ll stay healthy during the sick season.
