That was some brutal weather

I live in the extreme northern part of the country, where the Winter seasons are long in addition to exceptionally brutal.  It’s not unregular to experience below freezing temperatures for 6 to several straight weeks. Not only is the outside air terribly cold, but it’s also actually dry.  If I spend any time outside, I end up with chapped lips in addition to dry skin. Because of the harsh weather, it’s necessary to run the gas furnace at maximum capacity for weeks at a time.  The blast of heat further lowers humidity levels, leading to concerns with overly dry air. Dry air pulls moisture from everything it touches, including skin, hair in addition to even cabin furnishings.  Static shock is only a single of several consequences. Frizzy hair, eczema, psoriasis, dried nasal passages, sore throat, headaches in addition to itchy eyup are also symptoms of insufficient humidity. Plus, dry air makes people more susceptible to infection in addition to makes it much more difficult to get rid of a freezing or the flu.  I have invested in a steam-style humidifier for my home. This type of humidifier uses electrodes to convert water into steam in addition to introduces it into the air that passes through the gas furnace. The moisture is effectively spread throughout the house, in addition to I’m able to regulate the humidity level to my preference. Properly humidified air feels much warmer than overly dry air.  Because of the humidifier, my cabin feels far more comfortable at lower thermostat settings. This not only trims both energy usage in addition to my utility bills, but lessens strain on the gas furnace. I can expect the gas furnace to operate more reliably in addition to last longer.
