Cold, frigid air is enveloping much of the country right now and comfort seems to be top of mind for many people. Daily comfort is more than making sure you have warm jackets and hats. The colder weather basically extracts the humidity out of the air, which can affect the comfort of your indoor space in several ways.
Dry air is the culprit for several issues, including increased static and heightened risk for sickness. Those two things may not cause the same level of concern, but they are both annoyances that could be prevented with the use of a humidifier.
Why does winter dry my air out?
Well, when winter comes around and the temperatures drop, the makeup of the air itself changes. Cold air doesn’t hold as much moisture as warm air, which is why it’s easy to notice dry skin or chapped lips in the winter. Your home can also experience the side effects of dry air—especially wood floors and furniture, potentially causing splitting and cracking, and paint is also at a higher risk of chipping.
So, what are your options?
Humidification is more than just adding moisture to the air in your home. You’ll find there is a wide variety of options when it comes to humidifiers, but adding a whole-home humidifier gives you optimal control over the humidity in your home. Incorporated with your current HVAC system, it adds moisture directly into the heated air that is circulated throughout your indoor space. A whole-home humidifier delivers the moisture more reliably and in the maximum capacity too, so why settle for anything less than ideal 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 good environment for indoor plants to thrive. The appropriate humidification offers your plants the best chance at life and helps to ensure they last longer.
