Cold, frigid air is enveloping much of the country right now and comfort seems to be of high importance for most of us. Daily comfort is more than making sure you have warm jackets and hats. The colder weather really pulls the humidity out of the air, which can affect the comfort of your indoor space in several ways.
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 can 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. 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, what can you do?
Humidification is more than just adding moisture to the air in your home. Of course, there are a number of humidifiers to choose from, but adding a whole-home humidifier gives you the most control over the humidity in your home. 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 distributes the moisture more reliably and in the greatest capacity too, so why settle for anything less than ideal comfort?
- Adding a humidifier can help alleviate skin irritations and dry skin.
- Keeping humidity levels in check can save you from having to spend money on damaged furniture, flooring and paint.
- Reduce the static electricity in your home.
- Create a good environment for indoor plants to flourish. Proper humidification can help your plants live longer.
There are solutions available to make sure you don’t have to deal with the implications of dry air in the home. Proper humidification of your air is easier than you think too, so why wait any longer? Adding a humidifier to your indoor space can not only keep your home more comfortable, but can potentially help keep you a little healthier as all the bugs make their yearly rounds.
