How to Increase Your Toronto 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 fluctuate as well.  

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

For the most comfort, your home’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 Commercial HVAC can solve your problems. We can help you discover the best option for your family during a free home comfort assessment.
