How to Increase Your Edmonton Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

Your home's humidity plays a major part in your family's coziness. As the seasons change, 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 when it’s cold or too moist when temperatures rise? A whole-home humidifier from Rob's Albertan Service Experts can help. We can help you discover the ideal option for your household during a free home comfort assessment.

5 Benefits of Balanced Home Humidity

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

2. Contributes to a Healthy Environment

Correct humidity levels help alleviate 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.

4. Decreases Static Electricity

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


5. Helps Plants Thrive

Potted plants grow better when humidity levels are consistent and may even last longer.
