How to Increase Your Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

When most people think about humidity, it’s usually the outdoor humidity and how muggy or dry it feels. But when you inquire with any of our expert furnace service technicians about home comfort, humidity plays a big role in making us feel comfortable. As we go through the year and our indoor air transforms, humidity levels vary as well. For your best comfort, the humidity levels in your home should be between 35 percent and 50 percent.

Dry air during the colder months in Oklahoma City can also affect respiratory comfort, as it can dry out the mucous membranes in your throat and nose, possibly resulting in uncomfortable scratchy throats and noses. It also indicates that there could be a greater risk for colds and respiratory discomfort.

Check out these perks of proper humidification, and talk with your Gordon's Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning technician during your annual furnace service appointment to hear more.

Ideal humidity levels in your home can:

  • Save you from having to concerned about damaging wood furniture, flooring and paint in your home
  • Reduce the chance for static electricity and shocks
  • Leave you with the best environment to support your indoor plants, helping them live longer
  • Help alleviate skin irritations and dry skin quickly and easily

Purchasing a humidifier for your home may be the perfect solution to control your home’s humidity levels, so be sure to ask the team at Gordon's Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning about humidity control when you set up your annual furnace service appointment.
