Humidification in the Winter02/23/2015 Ensuring comfort in the wintertime demands more than just a warm coat, gloves and a hat.

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