How to Increase Your North America Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

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

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

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