How to Increase Your Indianapolis Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

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

Dry air during winter weather in Indianapolis can make your throat and nose feel coarse. It can also put you at a higher risk for colds and other ailments.

For the most 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 moist when it’s hot? A whole-home humidifier from Broad Ripple Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can help. We can help you discover the ideal option for your family during a free home comfort assessment.

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 costs.

2. Contributes to a Healthy Environment

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

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

Humidity that’s at the appropriate level can lower the opportunity for static electricity and shocks.
