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

All these hypothetical concerns can be avoided with the use of a humidifier. Why does the air dry out? What can you do about it? When temperatures drop, the composition and formation of the air itself changes. The chilly air has less moisture than summer air, which is why lips and skin can get chapped and dry much more often in the winter.
