Much of the country is facing below average temperatures right now and comfort seems to be top of mind for many people. Daily comfort is more than making sure you have warm jackets and hats. The colder weather really pulls 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 is the culprit for several issues, including an increase in your chances of getting sick and an increase in potential 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 does the air dry out?
Well, when winter comes around and the temperatures drop, the makeup of the air itself changes. Warmer air is able to retain more moisture, which is the reason you often notice your skin becoming drier or having to apply more lip balm. 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?
Adding moisture isn’t the only factor when it comes to humidification in the home. Of course, there are a number of humidifiers to choose 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 house. A whole-home humidifier circulates the moisture more reliably and in the maximum capacity, too, helping you and your family benefit from your ideal home comfort.
- Adding a humidifier can help improve 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.
- Promote an ideal environment for indoor plants to grow. Keeping your home’s air properly humidified can give plants the best space to live in, helping them live longer.
