With much of the country dealing with colder than normal temperatures, comfort seems to be top of mind for many people. Daily comfort extends beyond ensuring you have a warm coat and gloves too. The colder weather essentially extracts the humidity out of the air, resulting in dry air that can have several negative implications for your household.
Dry air can impact a lot of things, including everything from an increased risk for sickness to more frequent shocks from static. Of course, they aren’t even in the same realm of seriousness, but they are both annoyances that may be prevented with the use of a humidifier.
Why is my indoor air drying 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. You’ll find there is a wide variety of options when it comes to humidifiers, but adding a whole-home humidifier gives you optimal 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 distributes the moisture more reliably and in the maximum capacity too, which will help you reach your indoor comfort.
- Adding a humidifier can help alleviate skin irritations and dry skin.
- Keeping humidity levels in check helps to maintain your paint, furniture and flooring, avoiding additional repair costs.
- Reduce the occurrence of shocks from static electricity in your home.
- Foster 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. Proper humidification of your air is easier than you think too, so why wait any longer? Adding a humidifier to your home can not only keep your home more comfortable, but can potentially help keep you a little healthier as all the bugs make their yearly rounds.
