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 extends beyond ensuring you have a warm coat and gloves too. The colder weather really extracts 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 could be prevented with the use of a humidifier.
Why does winter dry my air out?
The winter months bring cooler air and the drop in temperatures impacts the makeup of the air. 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, what should you do next?
There is more to humidification than just increasing the amount of moisture. Of course, there are a number of humidifiers to choose from, but adding a whole-home humidifier gives you the best control over humidity levels in your house. Incorporated with your current HVAC system, it adds moisture directly into the heated air that is circulated throughout your home. A whole-home humidifier delivers the moisture more reliably and in the maximum capacity too, helping you and your family benefit from your ideal home comfort.
Other Benefits of a Humidifier
- Adding a humidifier can help improve skin irritations and dry skin.

- Reduce the static electricity in your home.
- Promote a proper environment for indoor plants to flourish. Proper humidification can help your plants live longer.
