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 basically sucks 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 increased static and heightened risk for sickness. These differ in the level of importance, 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. Warmer air is able to retain more moisture, which is why it’s easy to notice dry skin or chapped lips in the winter. 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?
Humidification is more than just adding moisture to the air in your home. There are a lot of different models and types of humidifiers to select from, but adding a whole-home humidifier gives you the best control over humidity levels in your house. It is added to your existing HVAC system and adds moisture directly into the heated air that is circulated throughout your indoor space. A whole-home humidifier distributes the moisture more reliably and in the greatest capacity too, helping you and your family benefit from your ideal home comfort.
- Adding a humidifier can help improve skin irritations and dry skin.
- Keeping humidity levels in check reduces the chances you’ll need to repair furniture, flooring or paint due to damage.
- Reduce the occurrence of shocks from static electricity in your home.
- Promote an ideal environment for indoor plants to flourish. Proper humidification can help your plants live longer.
