How to Increase Your Fort Lauderdale Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

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

Dry air during cooler seasons in Fort Lauderdale can make your throat and nose feel scratchy. It can also put you at a greater risk for colds and other sicknesses.

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

Does your home’s air feel too dry when it’s cold or too damp in the summer? A whole-home humidifier from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can make it better. We can help you find the right option for your household 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 heighten moisture levels can help your home feel cozier at a decreased temperature. This can save you more on heating expenses.

2. Contributes to a Healthy Environment

Ideal humidity levels help soothe dry skin sooner. It also nourishes your sinuses and nasal passages, helping alleviate respiratory issues.

3. Preserves Your Flooring

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

4. Decreases Static Electricity

Humidity that’s at the correct level can limit the chance of static electricity and shocks.


5. Helps Plants Thrive

Potted plants do better when humidity levels are steady and may even have a longer lifespan.
