How to Increase Your Provo Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

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

Dry air during colder weather in Provo can make your throat and nose feel coarse. It can also put you at a increased risk for colds and other illnesses.

For greatest 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 moist in the summer? A whole-home humidifier from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can make it better. We can help you find the ideal option for your family during a free home comfort assessment.
