Are you struggling with winter humidity issues? You’re not alone. The amount of moisture in the air drops significantly during the colder months. Can you do anything about it? You bet! Here’s how to tackle your dry indoor air.

Understanding Humidity in Your Home

When the relative humidity in your home drops, you can feel it. You’ll feel it in dry sinuses, irritated eyes, itchy dry skin, nosebleeds, sore throats, and the crazy amount of static that builds up and shocks you every time you turn on a light. The most comfortable average humidity level is between 30 and 50 percent. In the winter, it can drop below that, leaving you feeling less than well.

What Boosting the Humidity Can Do

Bumping up the humidity in your home can help eliminate the symptoms you feel with dry air, but it can do more. Getting the humidity in your house to the right level can make your house feel more comfortable and help you use less energy. Humid air feels warmer, so you can lower your thermostat without sacrificing comfort.

What Can You Do?

There’s a simple solution for tackling the dry air in your home – adding a humidifier to your HVAC system. A humidifier is a simple and affordable upgrade that can have a big impact. You’ll feel better, and your home will be more comfortable. And all you have to do is contact the team at Wilson’s Refrigeration and Air to find out more about what humidifier is right for your home.
