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 is more than making sure you have warm jackets and hats. The colder weather essentially sucks 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 everything from an increased risk for sickness to more frequent shocks from static. Those two things may not cause the same level of concern, but they are both annoyances that could be prevented with the use of a humidifier.

Why does winter dry my air out?

The colder air changes the makeup of the air during the winter. 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?

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 house. A whole-home humidifier delivers the moisture more consistently and in the ultimate capacity too, helping you and your family benefit from your ideal home comfort.
