Humidity. It’s every Michigander’s least favorite word during the summertime. If you’re anything like me, it makes your hair grow double in size as soon as you step out your front door. However, the moisture in the air we have plenty of during the summer goes away as soon as the first snow hits the ground. This causes the most scary thing of all about winter: Dry air.
You’re probably wondering, ‘Why is dry air a big deal? I like my hair the size it is when there is no humidity!’ Dry air causes a number of health problems including bloody noses, sore throats, and cracked skin, all things that probably have you saying ‘Ew. Gross.’ These things happen because your body is being dried out, making you more susceptible to becoming sick with colds and the flu. If that isn’t enough to persuade you how important humidity is, dry air also robs the moisture from your skin, making you feel colder than you already are. Ain’t nobody got time for that during the already-freezing-cold winter!
Not only is dry air bad for you; its also bad for your home. Dry air shrinks the framing around your doors and windows. This lets cold air in, making your home less energy efficient.
