Winter brings cold weather—we all expect that, and we have home heating systems to help keep our families warm. (If you don’t have a heating system or need a replacement, schedule service with our technicians.)
But winter brings more than cold with it. It also brings dry air. Moisture is drawn out of the air by freezing conditions, which gives the air that sharp crispness of the season. Homes can also experience dry air because of old atmosphere furnaces, which draw air from inside the home to work and then force the dry outside air to move in.
Dry conditions may make a hot summer day easier to take, but in winter it’s the opposite. When the air in your house is too dry (below 30% relative humidity), you’ll have a harder time keeping it warm.
