Furnace Humidity Tips: Effects of Dry Air in Your Home
Ontarians know our hot and humid summer very well. We all know high humidity in your home can lead to all kinds of problems, but did you know dry air can be just as damaging?
The Effects of Dry Air from Furnaces
• Dry air can make your skin feel cold and itchy, as well as dry out your throat and mouth
• Your home can see extensive damage with dry air, such as cracking and shrinking wood around door frames and moulding, as well as wood floors
• Any possessions you own that are made of wood like instruments and bookshelves can warp and bend as it’s dried out
• Dry air can also increase your risk of contracting a cold, which will keep you from skiing at Blue Mountain this winter!
