Tackling Dry Air in the Winter

Cold, frigid air is enveloping much of the country right now and comfort seems to be top of mind for many people. Daily comfort isn’t just making sure you have the proper attire to head outside. The colder weather basically extracts the humidity out of the air, which can affect the comfort of your indoor space in several ways..

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 could 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 the reason you often notice your skin becoming drier or having to apply more lip balm. 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. There are a lot of different models and types of humidifiers to select from, but adding a whole-home humidifier gives you optimal control over the humidity in your home. Working in partnership with your existing HVAC system, it adds moisture directly into the heated air that is circulated throughout your home. A whole-home humidifier delivers the moisture more regularly and in the maximum capacity, too, helping you and your family benefit from your ideal home comfort.
