Does a Gas Furnace Really Dry Out a Home’s Air?

Monday, January 18th, 2021

You may have heard it stated as a solid, unshakeable fact that a gas furnace dries out the air in a house. All that winter static electricity, cracked skin, and eye-and-nose irritation comes from the furnace sucking the moisture out of the home’s air.

But is this true? When you stop to think about how a gas furnace runs, it might not make much sense that it would remove moisture from the air. After all, there’s no water dripping in the furnace the way water drips in an air conditioner, which does remove moisture from the air as it runs. Is the “dry air from a furnace” a myth?

The answer is “yes and no.” A gas furnace can contribute to drier conditions, although not exactly the way you think. And there are ways you can deal with this problem, either with an IAQ solution or a different furnace in Colorado Springs, CO.
