Tackling Dry Air in the Winter

January 05, 2018

With much of the country dealing with colder than normal temperatures, comfort seems to be of high importance for most of us. Daily comfort extends beyond ensuring you have a warm coat and gloves, too. The colder weather really sucks the humidity out of the air, leaving you with dry air that can have a number of effects on you and your home.

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 may be prevented with the use of a humidifier.

Why does the air dry out?

Well, when winter comes around and the temperatures drop, the makeup of the air itself changes. Warmer air is able to retain more moisture, which you likely notice when you experience dry skin and chapped lips. 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?

Adding moisture isn’t the only factor when it comes to humidification in the home. 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 humidity levels in your house. 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 distributes the moisture more reliably and in the ultimate capacity, too, so why settle for anything less than ideal comfort?
