How to Increase Your Atlanta Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

Your home's humidity plays a critical function in your family's coziness. As the weather changes, humidity levels fluctuate as well.  

Dry air during cooler seasons in Atlanta can make your throat and nose feel scratchy. It can also put you at a higher risk for colds and other illnesses.

For ideal comfort, your home’s humidity levels should be between 35 and 50 percent.

Does your home’s air feel too dry in the winter or too moist when it’s hot? A whole-home humidifier from Peachtree Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can solve your problems. We can help you find the right option for your family 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 energy costs.

2. Contributes to a Healthy Environment

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

3. Preserves Your Flooring

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

Humidity that’s at the correct level can decrease the possibility of static electricity and shocks.
