      Why Raise Indoor Humidity Levels in Fall and Winter

      A balanced humidity level is important to keep your home comfortable. It keeps the air from becoming too dry and prevents health issues like itchy throats and skin irritations.  

      Why Raise Indoor Humidity Levels in Fall and Winter

      In this post, air conditioning repair company Superior Air explains the importance of humidity in your home and why you should raise indoor humidity levels during the colder months.

      Why Raise Indoor Humidity During Fall and Winter

      Too much dryness in your indoor air during fall and winter can cause itchy skin and electrostatic shock. It can also affect your home’s building materials, particularly the wooden components. Restoring some moisture in the air reduces or eliminates these issues.

      In summer, the average indoor humidity level should be around 30-45%. In fall and winter, relative humidity should be at 40% to prevent condensation during the coldest days.

      How to Introduce Indoor Humidity During Fall and Winter

      To ensure comfortable indoor temperatures and reduce your need for air conditioning maintenance, keep the following tips in mind:

      Use water bowls. Place bowls in areas where water can slowly evaporate and increase humidity in the air. For instance, you can put one on a sunny windowsill.

      Install an indoor vent kit. An indoor vent kit on the back of the dryer helps remove moisture and heat in your laundry room. Call a professional to install the aluminum duct system needed to set up the vent kits.

      Boil water whenever possible. Hot water from teapots and the kitchen evaporates quickly. So instead of using heaters or coffee makers, boil water whenever possible. This will help increase indoor humidity levels.
