How to Increase Your Waldorf Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

Your home's humidity plays a crucial role in your family's coziness. As the seasons change, humidity levels fluctuate as well.  

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

For the most comfort, your residence’s humidity levels should be between 35 and 50 percent.

Does your home’s air feel too dry when it’s cold or too moist in the summer? A whole-home humidifier from A-PLUS Service Experts can help. We can help you choose the ideal option for your home 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 increase moisture levels can help your home feel cozier at a cooler temperature. This can save you more on heating bills.

2. Contributes to a Healthy Environment

Balanced humidity levels help alleviate dry skin sooner. It also moisturizes 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 limit the chance of static electricity and shocks.
