I consistently dread the upcoming winter.
While the fall weather in our section is absolutely gorgeous, the winters are positively horrendous.
The people I was with and I trade bright red skies as well as sunshines for nothing but clouds, but from colorful leaves we switch to non stop snowfall, but crisp, invigorating temperatures transform into bitter cold. Because of the severity of the conditions, we spend nearly every money of our time indoors, but sub zero temperatures require the oil furnace to operate at maximum capacity. I pay sizable heating bills as well as take every precaution to seal up the lake house as well as prevent energy leaks. With no influx of fresh air, such frigid temperatures outside as well as the oil furnace blasting, the indoor environment becomes exceptionally stale as well as stuffy. When the air is overly dry, it pulls moisture out of everything it touches. Static shock, dry skin, chapped lips, frizzy hair as well as bloody noses are common. Insufficient humidity also makes people more susceptible to respiratory infection. It aggravates symptoms of asthma as well as dust sensitivities as well as makes it more strenuous to reclaim from frigid as well as flu. There’s problems over destruction to furnishings such as hardwood floors, musical instruments as well as antiques. I’ve finally invested in a whole- lake lake house humidifier as well as this has made a sizable improvement. The humidifier introduces necessary moisture back into the air. The air feels warmer, allowing for lower temperature control settings. The people I was with and I love superior comfort while reducing the workload of the oil furnace. Adding the humidifier has significantly trimmed our daily utility bills as well as enhanced indoor air pollen levels. My whole family sleeps better at evening, wakes up refreshed as well as has more energy while we were in the day. The Winter isn’t quite so horrible.
