How to Increase Your Windsor Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

Your home's humidity plays a critical part in your family's comfort. As the temperatures change, humidity levels fluctuate as well.  

Dry air during colder seasons in Windsor can make your throat and nose feel raspy. It can also put you at a greater risk for colds and other sicknesses.

For greatest comfort, your home’s humidity levels should be between 35 and 50 percent.

Does your home’s air feel too dry when it’s cold or too wet in the summer? A whole-home humidifier from Bryant Heating & Cooling Service Experts can solve your problems. We can help you choose the ideal option for your household during a free home comfort assessment.

5 Benefits of Balanced Home Humidity

1. Makes Your Home More Comfortable and Saves Energy

Using a whole-home humidifier to raise moisture levels can help your home feel cozier at a lower temperature. This can save you more on heating expenses.

2. Contributes to a Healthy Environment

Ideal humidity levels help heal dry skin quickly. It also conditions your sinuses and nasal passages, helping alleviate respiratory illnesses.

3. Preserves Your Flooring

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

4. Decreases Static Electricity

Humidity that’s at the appropriate level can lower the possibility of static electricity and shocks.


5. Helps Plants Thrive

Potted plants grow better when humidity levels are consistent and may even live longer.
