Okay, we’ve heard this so long we’re tired of it. But there is an essential truth to the well-worn phrase, because the humidity is the element that makes you feel hotter or colder.
Too much humidity can make stains appear on your walls and you may notice a musty odor. On the other hand, air that is too dry can cause cracks in the ceiling and walls, and shrink framing around windows and doors.
When running the furnace, the humidity in your home may be as low as 10% during the winter. Since the ideal relative humidity is between 30%-60% what can you do to balance the moisture in your home’s air?
This is easily done in a free survey during your seasonal service. Raising the level of indoor humidity can not only ease cold symptoms, but also reduce dry skin and itchy eyes especially during winter.
