February 23, 2015

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

All these potential concerns can be avoided with the use of a humidifier.

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

When temperatures decrease, the composition and formation of the air itself modifies. The cold air has less moisture than summer air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dry much easier in the cold weather. Our bodies aren’t the only entities that dry during the colder months – wood floors, furniture and paint in and about our homes have a higher risk of splitting and chipping in the dry air.
