How to Increase Your Houston Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

Your home's humidity plays a crucial role in your family's comfiness. As the weather changes, humidity levels fluctuate as well.  

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

For greatest comfort, your rooms’ humidity levels should be between 35 and 50 percent.

Does your home’s air feel too dry as temperatures drop or too damp when it’s hot? A whole-home humidifier from Church Services can make it better. We can help you choose the best option for your home during a free home comfort assessment.
