Humidification in the Winter

Making certain of comfort in the colder season entails more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep comfortable, we have to be conscious of one of the most overlooked aspects of cooler weather: dry air.

All these possible problems can be avoided with the use of a humidifier.

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

When temperatures lower, the makeup and formation of the air itself modifies. The chilly air has less moisture than warm air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and arid much easier in the chilly season. Our bodies aren’t the only things that dry during the colder months – wood floors, furniture and paint in and near our homes have a greater risk of breaking and chipping in the dry air.
