How to Increase Your Hurricane Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

Your home's humidity plays a critical role in your family's coziness. As the temperatures change, humidity levels vary as well.  

Dry air during winter seasons in Hurricane can make your throat and nose feel scratchy. It can also put you at a increased risk for colds and other ailments.

For the most 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 damp when temperatures rise? A whole-home humidifier from Teays Valley Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can help. We can help you find the ideal option for your family during a free home comfort assessment.
