How to Increase Your Calgary 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 fluctuate as well.  

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

For the most 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 help. We can help you choose the ideal option for your household during a free home comfort assessment.
