How to Increase Your Oakville Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

Your home's humidity plays a critical function in your family's coziness. As the weather changes, humidity levels vary as well.  

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

For ideal comfort, your rooms’ humidity levels should be between 35 and 50 percent.

Does your home’s air feel too dry in the winter or too wet when temperatures rise? A whole-home humidifier from Abbey Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can help. We can help you discover the best 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 heighten 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 sooner. It also conditions your sinuses and nasal passages, helping alleviate respiratory issues.

3. Preserves Your Flooring

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

4. Decreases Static Electricity

Humidity that’s at the right level can decrease the opportunity for static electricity and shocks.


5. Helps Plants Thrive

Potted plants flourish when humidity levels are even and may even have a longer lifespan.
