How to Increase Your Columbia Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

Your home's humidity plays a critical role in your family's comfiness. As the temperatures change, humidity levels fluctuate as well.  

Dry air during colder seasons in Columbia can make your throat and nose feel scratchy. It can also put you at a increased risk for colds and other illnesses.

For the most comfort, your rooms’ humidity levels should be between 35 and 50 percent.

Does your home’s air feel too dry in the winter or too moist when temperatures rise? A whole-home humidifier from Midland Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can help. We can help you discover the best option for your family during a free home comfort assessment.

5 Benefits of Balanced Home Humidity

Using a whole-home humidifier to heighten moisture levels can help your home feel cozier at a lower temperature. This can save you more on utility costs.

2. Contributes to a Healthy Environment

Correct humidity levels help alleviate dry skin quickly. It also conditions your sinuses and nasal passages, helping ease respiratory issues.

3. Preserves Your Flooring

Low humidity can ruin wood furniture, hardwood flooring and paint in your home.

Humidity that’s at the appropriate level can decrease the opportunity for static electricity and shocks.
