How to Increase Your West Chester Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

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

Dry air during winter seasons in West Chester can make your throat and nose feel scratchy. It can also put you at a increased 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 moist when temperatures rise? A whole-home humidifier from Wesley Wood Service Experts can make it better. We can help you choose the right option for your home 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 utility expenses.

2. Contributes to a Healthy Environment

Ideal humidity levels help heal dry skin quickly. It also moisturizes 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 correct level can decrease the possibility of static electricity and shocks.


5. Helps Plants Thrive

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