With much of the country dealing with colder than normal temperatures, comfort seems to be of high importance for most of us. Daily comfort is more than making sure you have warm jackets and hats. The colder weather essentially 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 is the culprit for several issues, including increased static and heightened risk for sickness. Of course, they aren’t even in the same realm of seriousness, 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. Cold air doesn’t hold as much moisture as warm air, which is the reason you often notice your skin becoming drier or having to apply more lip balm. 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?
Humidification is more than just adding moisture to the air in your home. Of course, there are a number of humidifiers to choose from, but adding a whole-home humidifier gives you the best control over the humidity in your home. 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 circulates the moisture more reliably and in the ultimate capacity, too, so why settle for anything less than ideal comfort?
- Adding a humidifier can help improve skin irritations and dry skin.
- Keeping humidity levels in check can save you from having to spend money on damaged furniture, flooring and paint.
- Reduce the occurrence of shocks from static electricity in your home.
- Promote a good environment for indoor plants to flourish. The appropriate humidification offers your plants the best chance at life and helps to ensure they last longer.
