How to Increase Your Shreveport Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

Your home's humidity plays a critical role in your family's coziness. As the seasons change, humidity levels shift as well.  

Dry air during cooler months in Shreveport can make your throat and nose feel raspy. It can also put you at a increased risk for colds and other illnesses.

For the most comfort, your rooms’ 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 Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can help. We can help you choose the best option for your household during a free home comfort assessment.
