How to Increase Your Belleville Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

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

Dry air during colder seasons in Belleville can make your throat and nose feel raspy. It can also put you at a higher risk for colds and other ailments.

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