Why Is My Indoor Air So Dry?

How Do I Get Rid of Dry Indoor Air?

Daily temperatures here in Texas can be unpredictable, with highs in the 70s some days, and lows in the 20s other days. This means that when we do get cold weather, many customers are very quick to crank the heat to stay warm. However, this can create a very dry climate in your home.

That said, here are some ways you can add more moisture to your air and breathe a bit easier this winter.

Turn Down the Heat

Yes, it’s true: your HVAC unit is helping make your home warmer, but it’s also contributing to the dry air you’re living with. Instead of running to your thermostat, try adding an extra layer of warmth — such as a warm blanket, sweatshirt, and a nice cup of hot chocolate.

By doing this, you’ll find that not only will your home not feel as stuffy, but you also won’t waste money on heating costs (i.e., constantly turning on and off of your unit). Additionally, raising the temperature on your thermostat to a high number will not heat your home faster — it will waste money on utility costs and add to the dryness of your living space.

Use a Humidifier

Humidifiers add moisture to the air inside your home and eliminate the dry, stuffy feeling you may be accustomed to. Finding the right level of humidity in your living space is vital to eradicate scratchy throats, ward off germs, and prevent dry skin.
