How to Increase Your Columbus Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

Your home's humidity plays a critical function in your family's coziness. As the weather changes, humidity levels vary as well.  

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

For ideal comfort, your residence’s 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 Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can make it better. We can help you discover the ideal option for your family during a free home comfort assessment.
