How to Increase Your Fort Myers Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

Your home's humidity plays a major part in your family's comfort. As the temperatures change, humidity levels fluctuate as well.  

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

For ideal 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 wet in the summer? A whole-home humidifier from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can solve your problems. We can help you discover the ideal option for your household during a free home comfort assessment.
