How to Increase Your Columbus Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

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

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

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