Much of the country is facing below average temperatures 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 really pulls the humidity out of the air, resulting in dry air that can have several negative implications for your household.
Dry air is the cause of many 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 can be prevented with the use of a humidifier.
Why does the air dry out?
The winter months bring cooler air and the drop in temperatures impacts the makeup of the air. Cooler air isn’t able to keep in the same amount of moisture as warmer air, which you likely notice when you experience dry skin and chapped lips. Your home can also experience the side effects of dry air—especially 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. You’ll find there is a wide variety of options when it comes to humidifiers, 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 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 helps to maintain your paint, furniture and flooring, avoiding additional repair costs.
- Reduce the static electricity in your home.
- Create an ideal environment for indoor plants to flourish. The appropriate humidification offers your plants the best chance at life and helps to ensure they last longer.
There’s no reason to have to deal with any of the side effects of dry air in the winter. It’s not as difficult as you might think, so why not get started right away? Adding a humidifier to your house doesn’t just keep your household comfortable, but also helps to ensure you stay healthy during the winter season.
