Humidification in the Winter

Air Quality

Ensuring comfort in the cold winter demands more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep comfortable, we have to be aware of one of the most ignored aspects of chilly weather: dry air. The freezing weather extracts all the humidity out of the air, bringing many problems for your family and home. Dry air increases the chances of everything from disease to even shocks from static. All these possible concerns can be prevented with the use of a humidifier.

Why does the air dry out? What can you do about it?

When temperatures decrease, the makeup and formation of the air itself modifies. The chilly air has less moisture than warm air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dehydrated much more often in the winter.

The greatest way to add moisture to your home is with humidification. Humidifiers offer whole-home air moisture and can give you back control of your home air. It is straightforward and painless to install to your current HVAC system to activitate the circulation and allocation of dependable air.
