How to Increase Your Longmont Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

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

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

For greatest comfort, your rooms’ 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 Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can make it better. We can help you choose the best option for your home during a free home comfort assessment.
