How to Increase Your Gaithersburg Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

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

Dry air during winter seasons in Gaithersburg can make your throat and nose feel coarse. It can also put you at a greater risk for colds and other illnesses.

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