Much of the country is facing below average temperatures right now and comfort seems to be top of mind for many people. Daily comfort is more than making sure you have warm jackets and hats. The colder weather essentially pulls 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. Those two things may not cause the same level of concern, but they are both annoyances that may be prevented with the use of a humidifier.
Why does the air dry out?
The colder air changes the makeup of the air during the winter. Cold air doesn’t hold as much moisture as warm air, which you likely notice when you experience dry skin and chapped lips. 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 are your options?
Adding moisture isn’t the only factor when it comes to humidification in the home. Of course, there are a number of humidifiers to choose from, but adding a whole-home humidifier gives you the most control over your home’s humidity. It is added to your existing HVAC system and adds moisture directly into the heated air that is circulated throughout your home. A whole-home humidifier delivers the moisture more reliably and in the greatest 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 reduces the chances you’ll need to repair furniture, flooring or paint due to damage.
- Reduce your chance of getting shocked through static electricity.
- Create a good environment for indoor plants to flourish. Proper humidification can help your plants live longer.
