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

February 28, 2023 | Blog

Have you ever turned on your heater during the winter and noticed that the air inside your home is dry? Understanding the impact a sealed combustion furnace has on your home, compared to an atmospheric furnace, is important to realize what may be causing the dryness inside your home.

Baldwin Heating & Cooling is here to help Daphne homeowners control the dry air inside their homes with our professional indoor air quality services and furnace installations! Here are some tips on how the different ways to manage your indoor humidity during the colder days.

What Are Sealed Combustion Furnaces?

Furnaces with burners that are sealed off from your home pull air from outside to work safely and efficiently. When it’s cold outside and your furnace draws the cold, dry air in, it’ll release the dry air inside your home, lowering your home’s indoor humidity and contributing to poor indoor air quality.

If you’re not a fan of having dry air inside your home, Baldwin Heating & Cooling is here for you! We’ll be happy to provide you and your home with a furnace installation. Contact us today to learn more!

The Importance Of Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality (IAQ) is the health level of the air inside a home or building — the condition of which could be good or bad. Homeowners shouldn’t have to worry about whether they’re breathing in healthy air while they’re in the comfort of their home, where healthy air is desired. In households, the main causes of poor air quality are daily dust particles and indoor pollution. At Baldwin Heating & Cooling, we prioritize testing the condition of your air and seeing if it’s good or not.

Ways To Manage Indoor Humidity

During the winter, it can be difficult to manage the dry air inside your home, especially if your heater is supplying it. Luckily, we have some tips for you that’ll help improve these conditions!

Ways to manage humidity inside your home:

  • Add houseplants
  • Hang laundry to dry
  • Check that your dryer is vented properly
  • Make sure windows are sealed
  • Be cautious about what temperature is inside

Following these tips will help reduce the impact of dry air in your home! Houseplants supply moisture when they’re watered and taken care of correctly and choosing the right temperature to heat your home impacts overall humidity levels.

These Guys Are the Best!

Excellent install of a generator by Jake & Ryan. They went over and above, working late waiting for the utility inspector to come out for final inspection. Couldn’t be happier…these guys are the best.
