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 weather changes, humidity levels fluctuate as well.  

Dry air during colder weather in Gaithersburg can make your throat and nose feel raspy. It can also put you at a greater risk for colds and other sicknesses.

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

Does your home’s air feel too dry in the winter or too damp when temperatures rise? A whole-home humidifier from Parker Pearce Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can make it better. We can help you find the ideal 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 decreased temperature. This can save you more on utility expenses.

2. Contributes to a Healthy Environment

Ideal humidity levels help alleviate dry skin quickly. It also moisturizes your sinuses and nasal passages, helping relieve respiratory issues.

3. Preserves Your Flooring

Too little can destroy wood furniture, hardwood flooring and paint in your home.

Humidity that’s at the correct level can decrease the chance of static electricity and shocks.
