How to Increase Your La Porte Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

Your home's humidity plays a critical function in your family's coziness. As the seasons change, humidity levels shift as well.  

Dry air during cooler weather in La Porte can make your throat and nose feel coarse. It can also put you at a higher risk for colds and other illnesses.

For greatest 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 wet when it’s hot? A whole-home humidifier from Finch Air Conditioning & Heating can help. We can help you discover the ideal option for your family during a free home comfort assessment.

Humidity that’s at the correct level can limit the opportunity for static electricity and shocks.
