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 essentially extracts 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 everything from an increased risk for sickness to more frequent shocks from static. Those two things may not cause the same level of concern, but they are both annoyances that can 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. Cooler air isn’t able to keep in the same amount of moisture as warmer air, which is why it’s easy to notice dry skin or chapped lips in the winter. Your home can also experience the side effects of dry air—especially 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. There are a lot of different models and types of humidifiers to select from, but adding a whole-home humidifier gives you the most control over the humidity in your home. 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 delivers the moisture more regularly and in the greatest capacity too, so why settle for anything less than ideal comfort?
- Adding a humidifier can help ease skin irritations and dry skin.
- Keeping humidity levels in check can save you from having to spend money on damaged furniture, flooring and paint.
- Reduce the occurrence of shocks from static electricity in your home.
- Promote a good environment for indoor plants to thrive. Keeping your home’s air properly humidified can give plants the best space to live in, helping them live longer.
