I constantly dread the upcoming winter.
While the fall weather in my section is genuinely gorgeous, the winters are positively horrendous.
Both of us trade bright red skies & sunshines for nothing however clouds, from colorful leaves all of us switch to non stop snowfall, however crisp, invigorating hot & cold temperatures transform into bitter cold. Because of the severity of the conditions, all of us spend nearly every money of our time indoors; Sub zero hot & cold temperatures require the gas furnace to operate at maximum capacity. I pay big heating bills & take every precaution to seal up the home & prevent energy leaks. With no influx of fresh air, such chilly hot & cold temperatures outside & the heating system blasting, the indoor environment becomes exceptionally stale & stuffy. When the air is overly dry, it pulls moisture out of everything it touches. Static shock, dry skin, chapped lips, frizzy hair & bloody noses are common. Insufficient humidity also makes people more susceptible to respiratory infection. It aggravates symptoms of asthma & allergies & makes it more taxing to recover from chilly & flu. There’s troubles over damage to furnishings such as hardwood floors, musical instruments & antiques. I’ve finally invested in a whole- home humidifier & this has made a big improvement. The humidifier introduces necessary moisture back into the air. The air feels warmer, allowing for lower temperature control settings. Both of us appreciate superior comfort while reducing the workload of the gas furnace. Adding the humidifier has significantly trimmed my monthly utility bills & enhanced indoor air conditions. My whole family sleeps better at night, wakes up refreshed & has more energy during the day. The Winter isn’t quite so horrible.
