Why Is It So Dry In My House In The Winter?

January 30, 2023 | Blog

Has your skin been feeling dry and itchy? Do your sinuses feel inflamed? Have you been waking up in the morning with a sore throat?

We value your well-being and recognize the importance of humidity in your home to prevent discomfort and illness. Read on for more info on why your house loses moisture in the winter and ways that you can combat this, or chat with one of our friendly team members at any time!

The Main Cause Of Dryness In Your Home

Wondering what’s sucking the moisture out of the air in your house? Depending on the heating system you have in your home, you may experience a decrease in humidity when the temperature drops outside. If you have a gas heater, there is a higher chance that you will suffer from a lack of moisture in your air.

This is because a gas furnace utilizes combustion to produce heat, a process that pulls air from indoors and can draw in cold, dry air from outside. As the gas heater brings in more air, it lowers the humidity in your home.

How To Improve Indoor Humidity In The Winter

Interested in learning some strategies that you can use to improve the quality of your air? Some of the best tips and tricks are:

  • Invest in a furnace, such as a sealed combustion furnace, that won’t draw on indoor air and works better at keeping your indoor humidity levels even.
  • Purchase a high-quality humidifier to add moisture to your air this winter.
  • Schedule an appointment to have the insulation in your home checked and any cracks sealed up.
  • Dust and vacuum your home regularly.
  • Make it a habit to apply moisturizer daily and drink lots of water in the winter.
  • Invest in some house plants to purify the air in your home.
