When you’re running your furnace, it’s essential to keep your home’s humidity under control for the best comfort. Let’s go over what the right indoor humidity should be in Jacksonville and how you can achieve it.

These recommendations can involve a whole-home humidifier. This device hooks up with your furnace to deliver stable humidity in every part of your house. It’s superior to a portable humidifier, which is restricted to humidifying an individual area at a time. And these humidifiers can result in a mess, spilling water as you transfer them from room to room.
