How to Increase Your Indianapolis Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

Your home's humidity plays a crucial part in your family's comfiness. As the weather changes, 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 increased risk for colds and other ailments.

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

Does your home’s air feel too dry as temperatures drop or too moist when temperatures rise? A whole-home humidifier from Broad Ripple Service Experts can help. We can help you discover the ideal option for your family during a free home comfort assessment.
