How to Increase Your Richmond Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

Your home's humidity plays a crucial part in your family's comfort. As the temperatures change, humidity levels fluctuate as well.  

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

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

Does your home’s air feel too dry when it’s cold or too wet in the summer? A whole-home humidifier from Eveready Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can make it better. We can help you choose the right 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 heighten moisture levels can help your home feel cozier at a lower temperature. This can save you more on utility costs.

2. Contributes to a Healthy Environment

Correct humidity levels help heal dry skin sooner. It also moisturizes your sinuses and nasal passages, helping relieve 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 right level can lower the possibility of static electricity and shocks.
