How to Increase Your Albany Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

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

Dry air during cooler months in Albany can make your throat and nose feel raspy. It can also put you at a greater risk for colds and other illnesses.

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

Does your home’s air feel too dry when it’s cold or too wet when temperatures rise? A whole-home humidifier from D.A. Bennett Service Experts can make it better. We can help you choose the right option for your family during a free home comfort assessment.

5 Benefits of Balanced Home Humidity

1. Makes Your Home More Comfortable and Saves Energy

Using a whole-home humidifier to raise moisture levels can help your home feel cozier at a cooler temperature. This can save you more on energy costs.

2. Contributes to a Healthy Environment

Correct humidity levels help heal dry skin sooner. It also nourishes your sinuses and nasal passages, helping relieve respiratory problems.

3. Preserves Your Flooring

Too little can destroy wood furniture, hardwood flooring and paint in your home.

4. Decreases Static Electricity

Humidity that’s at the right level can lower the chance of static electricity and shocks.


5. Helps Plants Thrive

Houseplants do better when humidity levels are consistent and may even live longer.
