How to Increase Your Salt Lake City Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

Your home's humidity plays a critical function in your family's coziness. As the temperatures change, humidity levels fluctuate as well.  

Dry air during cooler months in Salt Lake City can make your throat and nose feel coarse. It can also put you at a increased risk for colds and other ailments.

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

Does your home’s air feel too dry as temperatures drop or too moist when it’s hot? A whole-home humidifier from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can make it better. We can help you choose the right option for your family during a free home comfort assessment.
