How to Increase Your La Porte 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 La Porte can make your throat and nose feel coarse. It can also put you at a increased risk for colds and other sicknesses.

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 moist when temperatures rise? 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.

5 Benefits of Balanced Home Humidity

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

Correct humidity levels help alleviate dry skin sooner. It also nourishes your sinuses and nasal passages, helping relieve respiratory problems.

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

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