Humidification in the Winter02/23/2015 Ensuring comfort in the wintertime entails more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat.

All these possible problems can be counteracted with the use of a humidifier. Why does the air dry out? What can you do about it? When temperatures drop, the structure and formation of the air itself changes. The winter air has less moisture than summer air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and arid much quicker in the winter. Our bodies aren’t the only things that dry during the colder months – wood floors, furniture and paint in and about our homes have a larger risk of breaking and chipping in the dry air.
