Combating Dry Air This Winter

During the winter, the air in your home in Milford, Conn., may become dry, leaving you and your family uncomfortable and prone to sickness. Not to worry, adding a bit of humidity in your home is easier than you think.

Have Houseplants in Your Home

Certain types of houseplants are more than just nice to look at. Houseplants can add moisture to the air in your home, and here are the types you want to look to add to your home:

• Spider plant

• English ivy

• Peace lily

• Areca palm

For the best results, place the houseplants in different areas of your home.

Cook Liquid Meals in Your Kitchen

You can add moisture to the air in your home by cooking liquid meals such as chicken noodle soup or beef vegetable stew. Simmer these meals in a slow cooker or in a kettle on the top of a stove.

Maintain Your Home's Ventilation System

Maintaining your home's ventilation system is an excellent way to improve the humidity level inside your home. When the vents are blocked, poor air circulation can lead to hot areas in your home that will reduce the moisture in the air.

Hang Clothes to Dry

After doing laundry, hang your clothes to dry on a garment rack. As the garments dry, the moisture remains in the air, creating a home that has a higher humidity level.

Use The Hot Steam From Bathing

After a steamy hot shower, leave the door to the bathroom open so that the moisture in the air filters through the rest of your home.
