How to Increase Your Louisville Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

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

Dry air during cooler weather in Louisville 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 when it’s cold or too moist when it’s hot? A whole-home humidifier from Becht/Givens Service Experts can make it better. We can help you find the right option for your family during a free home comfort assessment.

Using a whole-home humidifier to heighten moisture levels can help your home feel more comfortable at a cooler temperature. This can save you more on energy bills.

2. Contributes to a Healthy Environment

Ideal humidity levels help soothe dry skin quickly. It also moisturizes your sinuses and nasal passages, helping ease respiratory illnesses.

3. Preserves Your Flooring

Too little 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 chance of static electricity and shocks.
