How to Increase Your Houston Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

Your home's humidity plays a crucial part in your family's comfiness. As the seasons change, humidity levels shift as well.

Dry air during cooler weather in Houston can make your throat and nose feel scratchy. It can also put you at a higher risk for colds and other sicknesses.

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

Does your home’s air feel too dry in the winter or too wet in the summer? A whole-home humidifier from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can make it better. We can help you choose the best option for your home during a free home comfort assessment.

5 Benefits of Balanced Home Humidity

Using a whole-home humidifier to increase moisture levels can help your home feel cozier at a decreased temperature. This can save you more on utility bills.

2. Contributes to a Healthy Environment

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

3. Preserves Your Flooring

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

4. Decreases Static Electricity

Humidity that’s at the correct level can lower the chance of static electricity and shocks.
