How to Increase Your Jacksonville Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

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

Dry air during winter weather in Jacksonville 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 residence’s 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 Air Engineers Service Experts can help. We can help you find the right 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 cozier at a lower temperature. This can save you more on energy costs.

2. Contributes to a Healthy Environment

Correct humidity levels help soothe dry skin fast. It also conditions your sinuses and nasal passages, helping ease respiratory problems.

3. Preserves Your Flooring

Low humidity can destroy wood furniture, hardwood flooring and paint in your home.

4. Decreases Static Electricity

Humidity that’s at the correct level can limit the opportunity for static electricity and shocks.
