Why Dry Air Is Bad for Your Comfort - and How to Fix it!
While the spring and summer are often associated with high humidity levels, fall and winter are the polar opposites - bringing dry air to Pennsylvania and Maryland residents. This dry, cold air can be detrimental to your comfort levels, and here’s how:
- Inhibits Disease Prevention
Especially these days, avoiding a cold, flu or any other viral infection is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. Dry air makes it tougher for our bodies to fight off infections, which is why so many people tend to get sick during the colder months.
- Harms the Skin
It’s hard to be comfortable in your home when you’re not comfortable in your own skin! Low humidity can cause the skin to dry out and result in itching, flaking as well as flare-ups of existing skin problems such as eczema and acne.
- Damages the Home & Furnishings
Your home and a lot of the furniture within are made of wood, and wood loves moisture. When there’s no moisture in the air, it gets drawn out of wooden furnishings as well as wooden beams and joists that support the home’s structure.
The solution for these issues? Bring moisture back into the home! We can help you do that with a whole-home humidification system, which will re-introduce moisture even on the driest of days protecting your health, your body and your home.
