How to Increase Your Dayton Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

Your home's humidity plays a crucial role in your family's comfiness. As the weather changes, humidity levels fluctuate as well.  

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

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

Does your home’s air feel too dry as temperatures drop or too damp when it’s hot? A whole-home humidifier from Stevenson Service Experts can help. We can help you find the best option for your home during a free home comfort assessment.

5 Benefits of Balanced Home Humidity

Using a whole-home humidifier to raise moisture levels can help your home feel cozier at a lower temperature. This can save you more on heating expenses.

2. Contributes to a Healthy Environment

Balanced humidity levels help heal 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.

Humidity that’s at the appropriate level can decrease the chance of static electricity and shocks.
