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 sucks the humidity out of the air, leaving you with dry air that can have a number of effects on you and your home.

Dry air can impact a lot of things, including increased static and heightened risk for sickness. These differ in the level of importance, but they are both annoyances that may be prevented with the use of a humidifier.

Why does winter dry my air out?

The winter months bring cooler air and the drop in temperatures impacts the makeup of the air. Cold air doesn’t hold as much moisture as warm air, which is why it’s easy to notice dry skin or chapped lips in the winter. 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 should you do next?

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. Incorporated with your current HVAC system, it adds moisture directly into the heated air that is circulated throughout your home. A whole-home humidifier delivers the moisture more regularly and in the greatest capacity too, so why settle for anything less than ideal comfort?
