With much of the country dealing with colder than normal temperatures, comfort seems to be one of the most important topics each day. Daily comfort is more than making sure you have warm jackets and hats. The colder weather really 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 is the culprit for several issues, including everything from an increased risk for sickness to more frequent shocks from static. Of course, they aren’t even in the same realm of seriousness, but they are both annoyances that could be prevented with the use of a humidifier.
Why is my indoor air drying out?
The colder air changes the makeup of the air during the winter. Cooler air isn’t able to keep in the same amount of moisture as warmer air, which you likely notice when you experience dry skin and chapped lips. This can also impact the inside of your home, such as wood floors and furniture, potentially causing splitting and cracking, and paint is also at a higher risk of chipping.
So, how do you help?
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. It is added to your existing HVAC system and adds moisture directly into the heated air that is circulated throughout your home. A whole-home humidifier delivers 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 ease skin irritations and dry skin.
- Keeping humidity levels in check helps to maintain your paint, furniture and flooring, avoiding additional repair costs.
- Reduce your chance of getting shocked through static electricity.
- Create 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.
