How to Increase Your Toronto Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

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

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

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

Does your home’s air feel too dry in the winter or too wet when it’s hot? A whole-home humidifier from Service Experts Commercial HVAC can help. We can help you discover the best option for your family during a free home comfort assessment.

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