Much of the country is facing below average temperatures right now and 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 really pulls 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 increased static and heightened risk for sickness. These differ in the level of importance, but they are both annoyances that can 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. Cooler air isn’t able to keep in the same amount of moisture as warmer air, which is the reason you often notice your skin becoming drier or having to apply more lip balm. 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?
Humidification is more than just adding moisture to the air in your 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 the humidity in your home. Incorporated with your current HVAC system, it adds moisture directly into the heated air that is circulated throughout your home. A whole-home humidifier circulates the moisture more regularly and in the greatest capacity too, helping you and your family benefit from your ideal home comfort.
- Adding a humidifier can help alleviate skin irritations and dry skin.
