Cold air is dry air

During the winter months, dominant cold air masses move in and are very dry.  They can bring relative humidity down to 10%, even inside your home.  On a list of pet peeves made by home owners “dry air inside the house” was listed at #4.  No surprise there really.  Dry indoor air can make skin itchy and red, can irritate the nose and throat, and can be harmful to wood furniture and floors.  In addition to these more obvious effects of dry air, it can also make your heating bill increase.  When air moisture is low, skin moisture lowers too.  When skin moisture lowers your body feels colder, resulting in increasing the thermostat.  This only furthers the dry air in your home.

If this is a problem in your home this winter, you might want to try these Non-Electric Humidifier’s from Picket Fence‘s website.  These humidifiers attach to your forced air vents and as air passes through, water evaporates and increases the humidity in your home.  It is an easy and affordable way to make winter a bit easier this year and in years to come.

As always, Art.

I have a huge problem with dry indoor air. My skin gets so dry every winter. Anything to help alleviate this issue is tops with me. I like the fact that there are no cords to fuss with too. It’s safe and easy, right up my alley.
