How to Increase Your Edmonton Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

Your home's humidity plays a major part in your family's comfiness. As the weather changes, humidity levels shift as well.  

Dry air during cooler months in Edmonton can make your throat and nose feel scratchy. It can also put you at a greater risk for colds and other ailments.

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

Does your home’s air feel too dry as temperatures drop or too wet when it’s hot? A whole-home humidifier from Rob's Albertan Service Experts can help. We can help you choose the best option for your home during a free home comfort assessment.

5 Benefits of Balanced Home Humidity

Using a whole-home humidifier to heighten moisture levels can help your home feel more comfortable at a lower temperature. This can save you more on energy expenses.

2. Contributes to a Healthy Environment

Correct humidity levels help heal dry skin sooner. It also nourishes your sinuses and nasal passages, helping alleviate respiratory illnesses.

3. Preserves Your Flooring

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

Humidity that’s at the correct level can lower the possibility of static electricity and shocks.
