Cold, frigid air is enveloping much of the country right now and comfort seems to be of high importance for most of us. Daily comfort extends beyond ensuring you have a warm coat and gloves, too. The colder weather really extracts the humidity out of the air, which can affect the comfort of your indoor space in several ways..
Dry air is the cause of many things, including increased static and heightened risk for sickness. These differ in the level of importance, but they are both annoyances that can 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. Warmer air is able to retain more moisture, 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 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 optimal control over humidity levels in your house. Working in partnership with your existing HVAC system, it adds moisture directly into the heated air that is circulated throughout your home. A whole-home humidifier distributes the moisture more consistently and in the ultimate capacity, too, helping you and your family benefit from your ideal home 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 static electricity in your home.
- Create an ideal environment for indoor plants to flourish. Proper humidification can help your plants live longer.
You don’t have to suffer because 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 indoor space 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.
