Humidification in the Winter

Making certain of comfort in the colder season entails more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat.

All these hypothetical concerns can be counteracted with the use of a humidifier.

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

When temperatures drop, the makeup and formation of the air itself alters. The winter air has less moisture than summer air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dehydrated much easier in the chilly season.
