How to Increase Your Canada Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

Your home's humidity plays a major part in your family's comfiness. As the seasons change, humidity levels shift as well.  

Dry air during colder weather in Canada can make your throat and nose feel raspy. It can also put you at a higher risk for colds and other illnesses.

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

Does your home’s air feel too dry when it’s cold or too moist when temperatures rise? A whole-home humidifier from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can help. We can help you choose the right option for your household during a free home comfort assessment.

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

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