I'm hoping you could give me some information about why static electricity increases in the cold weather?
The reason static is more problematic in cold weather is because of low humidity of the air. "Relative humidity" is the percentage of moisture held in the air compared to the maximum it could hold at that temperature. So 50% rh means the air has only half the amount of moisture it could hold. It turns out that static is promoted if rh drops below about 30%.
Cold air can hold less moisture than warm air. So cold outside air at say 0oC and 100% rh is taken into a building and heated up to make it comfortable. The relative humidity drops by one half for every 10oC rise in temperature - so if no moisture is added, the air will be 50%rh at 10oC and 25%rh if heated to 20oC. 25% is certainly dry enough to promote static electricity!.
The main factors conributing to static electricity indoors are floor covering and shoe sole materials, and furniture covers materials, and dry air conditions.
