Tackling Dry Air in the Winter

January 05, 2018

Cold, frigid air is enveloping much of the country right now and comfort seems to be one of the most important topics each day. Daily comfort isn’t just making sure you have the proper attire to head outside. The colder weather really 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 an increase in your chances of getting sick and an increase in potential 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. Warmer air is able to retain more moisture, which you likely notice when you experience dry skin and chapped lips. This can also impact the inside of your home, such as 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 your home’s humidity. 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 ultimate capacity, too, so why settle for anything less than ideal comfort?
