Humidification in the Winter02/23/2015 Guaranteeing comfort in the colder season entails more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat. In order to keep warm, we have to be conscious of one of the most overlooked aspects of cooler weather: dry air.

All these potential issues can be counteracted 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 alters. The chilly air has less moisture than warm air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dry much more often in the cold weather.
