Drinking Water in the Winter

March 3, 2015

When you think about the importance of drinking water, summer and hot weather usually come to mind. Not winter. But staying hydrated in the cold weather is just as important!

So how much water is enough? You’ve probably heard the old advice to drink eight glasses of water a day. But according to the Institute of Medicine, men typically need 13 cups of fluid (or water) a day and women need nine cups of fluid (or water) a day.

Here are a few of the benefits of drinking the adequate amount of water during all seasons.

  • Lose weight – Drinking water is part of a healthy diet. Drinking a glass of water before a meal often helps you eat less. Plus, our bodies sometimes confuse thirst for hunger. So you may eat when you actually need water.
  • Better skin – Skin can get dehydrated, as well. When you add dry, dull skin to overcast, cold and windy weather, that’s a bad combination. Keeping hydrated leads to healthier skin, which can be a major plus when it’s nasty outside.
  • Have more energy – When you don’t drink enough water, your body loses energy. So if you constantly feel like tired, consider what you’re putting in your body.

If you need to drink more water, consider a drinking water system for your home from Kinetico San Antonio! Our K5 system produces the best tasting, cleanest water around. Contact our office for a free estimate.

We're very glad we got this installed. The technician, Alberto, was very polite and thoroughly explained what he was doing and what we would need to do.

Alberto kept me informed on his arrival time. He was professional and exceeded my expectations concerning the install of the water filtration system. I also need to put a plug in for Tracy for her patience and skills at making things happen behind the scenes...a true unsung hero. They both deserve a raise!


I just had my system installed by Alberto and Jay, and I wanted to say that they rocked. Got it all in and gave me some instructions to follow, all while being determined to detail and professional. Thanks, fellas.
