Humidification in the Winter

Making certain of comfort in the colder season entails more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep cozy, we have to be conscious of one of the most ignored aspects of colder weather: dry air.

All these possible issues can be avoided with the use of a humidifier.

Why does the air dry out? What can you do about it?

When temperatures lower, the composition and formation of the air itself changes. The cold air has less moisture than warm air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and arid much quicker in the chilly season. Our bodies aren’t the only entities that dry during the winter – wood floors, furniture and paint in and around our homes have a greater risk of cracking and chipping in the dry air.

The greatest way to add moisture to your home is with humidification. Humidifiers provide whole-home air moisture and can bring you back control of your home air. It is easy and painless to install to your current HVAC system to start the circulation and distribution of consistent air.
