There is less moisture in cold air than warm air. I live in an area where cold weather is expected for more than six months of the year. We are familiar with temperatures down to negative twenty-five degrees and bitter wind chills. We aren’t surprised by an accumulation of several feet of snow in a single night. Because of the freezing cold conditions, the furnace runs just about non stop for the majority of the year. Inside the house, the air becomes especially dry. The lack of humidity creates a long list of problems. Because the dry air feels colder, it’s tempting to raise the thermostat setting. This creates a bigger workload for the furnace and leads to higher energy bills. The dry air also aggravates issues with asthma, allergies, eczema and psoriasis. Frizzy hair, chapped lips, coughing, sneezing, congestion, headaches, insomnia and respiratory infection can often be blamed on insufficient humidity. The air can dry out nasal passages making people more susceptible to cold and flu. Plus, recovery times are extended in dry conditions. There is the worry over antiques, musical instruments and hardwood floors, doors and moldings drying out and cracking. I’ve even seen the drywall seams of walls and floors become raised due to the lack of proper humidity. A whole-home humidifier solves all of these problems. There are steam-style, fan-powered and bypass humidifiers available to accommodate different sizes of home. For our larger home, a steam-style humidifier was the best choice. The unit uses electroduces to change water into steam and then introduces the moisture into the heated air as it travels through the furnace. The humidity is distributed to every room in the house, improving the comfort and health of the living space.
